I am having no luck in compiling the modules.

Here is what I have been selecting.

<M> I2C support
<M> I2C bit-banging interfaces (NEW)
<M> I2C PCF 8584 interfaces (NEW)
[*] I2C mainboard interfaces (NEW)
<M>   Pseudo ISA adapter (for some hardware sensors) (NEW)
<M> I2C device interface (NEW)
<M> I2C /proc interface (required for hardware sensors) (NEW)
<M>   National Semiconductor LM75 and compatibles (NEW)
<M>   National Semiconductor LM78 (NEW)
<M>   National Semiconductor LM80 (NEW)
<M>   National Semiconductor LM85, Analog Devices ADM1027 (NEW)
<M>   National Semiconductor LM87 (NEW)
<M>   National Semiconductor LM92 (NEW)
[*] Other I2C devices (NEW)
<M>   EEprom (DIMM) reader  (NEW)

Here is the last error message.
i2c-isa.c:46: error: unknown field `owner' specified in initializer
i2c-isa.c:46: warning: missing braces around initializer
