lm_sensors on a Athlon-MP [amd-768]?

we have a new driver and much better detection for the w83627hf in CVS.
It doesn't appear that the sensors-detect output below is from CVS.
Please try sensors-detect and the new driver from CVS again
and include output if it doesn't work.
Unfortunately CVS is somewhat broken right now, you will need i2c CVS as
well, and you may wish to wait a week or so until things settle down.

Don't know anything about 768 SMP problems.
