For what it's worth, sensors-detect is a perl script, so there is no
cross-compilation involved (providing you have perl available on the target
plateform).

That said, is it is unlikely that regular folks will have these chips on their
motherboards, I probably won't bother applying my patch to the CVS tree - so
test it for fun if you want but don't spend extra time on this.

You're welcome :)

(BTW I am definitely not the one to thank here - I am only maintaining a
project those bases were laid down by other folks years ago.)
