No luck :/

OK, thanks :)

The detection code is qualified as "lousy" in the driver. And I can see
that this detection code is mostly different from the one in
sensors-detect. This would need fixing.
Mark, care to take a look?
Stefano, which detection is failing, sensors-detect's or smartbatt's?
You can still try forcing the smartbatt driver to load with force=0,0x0b
(assuming this is on i2c bus 0). This will bypass the detection and
maybe you'll get results.
