But what would you be packaging exactly? Remember that the kernel
modules in lm_sensors2 CVS are *not* suitable for 2.6 kernels. What
Rudolf was proposing was to backport one given driver from a recent 2.6
kernel to 2.6.9. This would be done on an individual basis. There is no
out-of-tree set of hardware monitoring drivers working for every 2.6
kernel, like we had for 2.4 kernels.
