The kernel rpms for Fedora Core 1 (labeled as rawhide in the repo)
already have 2.8.1 support. Userland lm_sensors needs to be updated,
and I wanted to try building the kernel modules there also (otherwise
one may miss a few).

If I make lm_sensors.spec a specfile for kernel modules it will
probably become unreadable. Any help in packaging is appreciated!

BTW does lm_sensors 2.8.1 (userland & kernel modules) require i2c
2.8.1 or is i2c 2.8.0 already adequate? If the latter is true it would
save me from rebuilding the RH7.3-RH9 kernels.
