On 64-bit, I have an Intel 64-bit system, haven't recompiled in a while, but
it works, last time I was really working on it I don't think I fixed 
all the compiler warnings. I can look at it again if it's timely.

On the lm85 patch, I can check it into CVS if it isn't in there already
(can't remember where we left it - will have to check)

On a release, let's call it 2.8.0 (since we removed all pre-kernel-2.4.9 compatibility)
and let's release in 2-3 weeks. We'll release from the lm_sensors tree
and from the lk2-4 branch of the i2c tree.
I think any "reverse merges" from the trunk to the lk2-4 branch in
i2c will have to be manual. But it shouldn't be very much.
Mainly the new ID's in i2c-id.h.

sound like a plan?
