The person who send me that patch use i2c on sparc to get an em8300 card
working (MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 decoding card). Some chips on the card have
to be accessed via i2c, and thus the i2c modules are needed.

That also explain why he also send me the patch only for i2c and not for
lm-sensors, however I think the patch could also be applied to 
lm-sensors.

I don't think so, anyway you can add sensors by yourself, and access
them via i2c-parport :) (if your Sparc has a parallel port, some as mine
have one).
