[lm-sensors] Motherboard-specific configurations (sensors4mobo)

Hey Jean,

Sorry if it sounded like "Jean will just make enough time available to fix 
it all", I didn't mean that :)

Anyway, I agree that having more than one project is everything but 
desireble. Since we started to add these functions to sensors-detect anyway, 
I think it is best if we just continue with it and take the best practices 
from the other projects. I think it is also the best if this functionality 
is added to the sensors-detect script, instead of (multiple?) other scripts.

So, thanks for your time, and you'll be hearing from us every now and then,

Ivo
