This is about to change. It was decided (oh well, *I* decided and nobody
complained so far) that we would now include all drivers with both
methods. There's no reason that I can see to do it differently.

Not all drivers have been included back into the "patch the kernel tree"
method yet, but in the long term they should.

I've been adding five drivers today (lm83, lm90, asb100, max6650 and
w83l785ts). Patches to enable more of them, or all, are welcome. Else we
will probably add them on request only (unless I suddently get plenty of
free time, but it's rather improbable).
