Ok, I answered my own question, yes I can backport the w83627ehf driver 
from 2.6.21 to 2.6.16.

If anyone is interested I put the patches here:

http://www.curtronics.com/patches/

Not bad for one nights work.

Below is the living proof. The chip ID reported by the W83627DHG on this 
MB was different then what the 2.6.21 w83627ehf code looked for so now 
it looks for both. There are 4 fans connected to this MB but only 3 are 
showing up, the 4th is a MSI installed fan on the Northbridge chip. 
Maybe I can't see that one, I don't know at this point. I have to 
validate the voltages also, they don't look quite right.
