I'm sorry but I'm not a system programmer. I even not a C programmer.
I've done few modification of w83627hf.c file (see attacment). So,
at now, I can load w83627hf.o module. I even see some "files" under 
# ls /proc/sys/dev/sensors/w83637hf-isa-0290/
alarms  fan1  fan3     in0  in2  in4  in6  in8   pwm2     sensor2  temp1 
  temp3  vrm
beep    fan2  fan_div  in1  in3  in5  in7  pwm1  sensor1  sensor3  temp2 

But I see no output from "sensors" command (I've copied a section in
sensors.conf from w83627hf section) and "sensors -s" produces errors:
# sensors
Adapter: ISA adapter
Algorithm: ISA algorithm
# sensors -s
Error: Line 1862: Unknown feature name

So, I can be helpful only as a tester.
