I guess what I am really trying to get at here is the following:
If I just take the source code for the various modules I want
from the lm_sensors 2.10.x tree and patch it into a 2.6.9 kernel,
is it going to compile, or is the source code out there only
good to compile into 2.4 kernels.

Has nobody ever tried to patch the latest lm_sensors code
into a 2.6.9. enterprise kernel?  Under enterprise linux 3
we used to do this all the time, I don't understand why
nobody has tried to do it in Enterprise linux 4.
