OK, three possibilities then:

1* The PCI ID of your i801 chip is not in our list. Very unlikely, else
sensors-detect wouldn't have detected it at first.

2* There is another driver requesting the "authority" upon this chip.
I've heard stories about this, I don't know if it applies there. Are
there any other driver on your system you know of which uses the i801?

3* You have an Asus motherboard which hides the i2c bus. In this case,
refer to prog/hotplug/README.p4b. I think this is the more probable, so
you should try this first.
