Don't modprobe sis5595, you don't have one of those.  SiS96x are
often mis-detected as SiS5595.

Make sure to load neither sis5595 nor i2c-sis5595.  You may want to
try loading i2c-sis645 instead (although perhaps you don't need it,
if your w83697hf is ISA accessible.)  Let us know if that doesn't help.

Also make sure you have no old sensors libraries hanging around from
RPMS or whatnot.
