two small questions when compile lm_sensors

Hi Jean

I meet two small questions when compile lm_sensors, they are not urgent,
you may give me some help when you are free.

Question 1:
Error appears when compile the module kernel/chips/bmcsensors.o

The message is attached in this mail. The strange thing is that:
I remember that when I compiled lm_sensors-2.9.0 for the first time
(right after installed my Redhat9), this error did NOT appear.

Now, I have to comment out the module bmcsensors from the file
**********     error message     ********************

kernel/chips/bmcsensors.c: At top level:
kernel/chips/bmcsensors.c:45: warning: `addr_data' defined but not used
make: *** [kernel/chips/bmcsensors.o] Error 1

Question 2:
Occasionally, when I compiled lm_sensors-2.9.0(or i2c-2.9.0), it took me
very long time(maybe several hours) to finish compiling. The "*.d" files
lm_sensors-2.9.0/kernel/chips/ (or i2c-2.9.0/kernel/*.d) were
produced(refreshed) again and again.

When I interrupt the compile, this phenomenon sometimes continues, or
disappear: once, I re-compile it on the second day, this strange

I can not find the reason about it, Can you?

Best Regards
