I see :-)
Anyway: since yours is a kernel recompiled for those who "know what they're 
doing" and since setting up lm_sensors needs some knowledge, I think it would 
be nice to include all those modules in your distribution.
Consider that sensors-detect script already knows which modules are dangerous 
and which ones are not and acts accordingly.
Just a suggestion. Thank you for your time :-)
