I'm losing here,

I've try to compile 2.6.7

however I can't load the IPMI_SI module.
Error is as below.

IPMI System Interface driver version v31, KCS version v31, SMIC version
v31, BT version v31
ipmi_si: Unknown SMBIOS SI type.
ipmi_si: Trying "kcs" at I/O port 0xca2
ipmi_si: Trying "smic" at I/O port 0xca9
ipmi_si: Trying "bt" at I/O port 0xe4
ipmi_si: Unknown SMBIOS SI type.
ipmi_si: Unknown SMBIOS SI type.
ipmi_si: Unknown SMBIOS SI type.
ipmi_si: Unable to find any System Interface(s)

with the patch + lm_sensors 2.8.7 & also 2.9.0
I've try to do a sensor-detect only the old config is being detected.
(the one that giving 127 C)... WOO (Which is the wrong value)

this is the lsmod that I'm loading

So I dont know where I'm now...

I'm not too sure where it fit.

I'm on an SE7210TP1-E Mobo where the sensor chip is
AD1207 & PC87431, if you need more information.

Please help

P.s is ipmi_smb really exists?
