The lm85 driver should support it. We have to find out why it didn't.

Please recompile with I2C chip debug turned on (it's an option in the
Linux configuration menu), then reload the lm85 driver and watch the
logs for hints.

You could also try using the force parameter of the lm85 module to force
it to accept your chip, and see how it goes:
  modprobe lm85 force=0,0x2e
Again, watch the logs for hints.
