Did you get these from Axel Thimm?  It looks like his lm_sensors package
includes userspace tools only.  You probably need to use his custom
kernel for the 2.8.0 version of I2C and sensors kernel modules.

Yes this is definitely an old kernel module.

They're pretty easy to build and install; make sure that you remove any
old versions first, and follow the READMEs.
