It's great that 2.8.0 is already in Cooker :) However, I'm not sure
it'll be sufficent for an out-of-the-box installation of lm_sensors CVS.
We have a new function (i2c_delay) in i2c CVS, which is used by some
(most) bus drivers in lm_sensors CVS, so I guess you'll have some
problems here. I'd recommend that you install i2c CVS prior to
lm_sensors CVS. If Cooker's kernel is already patched, i2c CVS should
install like a charm and will not cause any problem to other, and
lm_sensors CVS will then work OK too.

Yes, please do :)
