Looks all OK to me (except that you most likely don't really need any of
the algorithm drivers.)

I suspect that you have the same problem as reported here:
and here:

Please check in /proc/ioports if the 0x295-0x296 range is reserved by
pnp. If it is, you would have to remove "Plug and Play ACPI support"
from your kernel and then sensors should be working again.
