Non-detectable devices are really rare ones, this is why probing them is
disabled by default in sensors-detect. Maybe we should add a warning
stating that ordinary users shouldn't try this, or maybe we should even
remove support from sensors-detect. So far, it has caused more trouble
than it helped.

Please provide the output of sensors-detect without the 'non-detectable'
probes, so that I can tell you more about what you can do with our
package. Don't forget to unload all i2c drivers before doing so, or the
results may be unreliable.
