Why even worry about a 2.5 and onward version of the CVS tree?  Why not
just use CVS for 2.4 and older, and use the in-kernel tree version of
the sensors and i2c code for that stuff?

If not, it's a lot of work to try to keep up with all of the other
changes to the code, and placing it backwards into the cvs tree.
