[lm-sensors] M/B Sensor not working correctly

Hi.
I'm having some troubles with my motherboard sensor that seems to be
badly configured.
The board in question is a _VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8378 [KM400/A]_ and
I'm using the _it87-isa-0290_ driver.

These are two outputs of 'sensors', just a few seconds apart:

Adapter: ISA adapter
VCore 1:   +1.52 V  (min =  +1.42 V, max =  +1.57 V)
VCore 2:   +2.50 V  (min =  +2.40 V, max =  +2.61 V)
fan1:     1757 RPM  (min = 1298 RPM, div = 8)
fan2:     5113 RPM  (min = 4017 RPM, div = 8)
M/B Temp:    +65°C  (low  =   +15°C, high =   +40°C)   sensor = diode
CPU Temp:    +51°C  (low  =   +25°C, high =   +60°C)   sensor = diode


Adapter: ISA adapter
VCore 1:   +1.54 V  (min =  +1.42 V, max =  +1.57 V)
VCore 2:   +2.51 V  (min =  +2.40 V, max =  +2.61 V)
fan1:     1776 RPM  (min = 1298 RPM, div = 8)
fan2:     5113 RPM  (min = 4017 RPM, div = 8)
M/B Temp:    +86°C  (low  =   +15°C, high =   +40°C)   sensor = diode
CPU Temp:    +52°C  (low  =   +25°C, high =   +60°C)   sensor = diode

I would say there is definitely something wrong with the M/B sensor.
I tried changing the type to 'thermistor' but then the sensor was
displaying a fixed temperature of 127°C.
BTW the cpu's sensor works all right, I checked with the BIOS values.

Any suggestions to make the M/B sensor work?
Thanks

Andrea
