The line which specifies CONFIG_I2C_PROC in i2c/mkpatch/ is missing
from the kernel file: drivers/i2c/  Of course CONFIG_SENSORS
depends on CONFIG_I2C_PROC so that's why I never saw it.  I'm not familiar
w/ the guts of mkpatch - but I'll try to look at it unless someone else
gets there first (hopefully... took a quick peek but I'm no Perl guru.)
