I could modify the driver to update the sensor values periodically with
a timer, though the msleep forces me to push the actual work of reading
the sensor values into a workqueue.  This has the effect of making sysfs
reads nearly instantaneous though I don't know if sleeping for a second
in the system workqueue is agreeable.  It might be useful to create a
separate workqueue for slow sensor chip reads.

Ugh, the patch is buggy, so I'll have to hack on it a little longer.
