The -mm tree has my experimental i2c patches included, one of which is
causing a change in sysfs which libsensors doesn't expect, thus the
error message you quoted above. If "sensors" plains stop because of
that, it probably means that you're using a relatively old version, as
newer versions keep displaying the data despite this error.

You may try "sensors -a" as a workaround, although I'm not sure if it'll
work properly on an old version.

If you want sensors to work perfectly with the current -mm tree, you
need lm-sensors SVN. You can download snapshots from:

Thanks for reporting anyway, it's always nice to hear back from
testers :)
