I have the following problems, trying to monitor my Broadcom CSB5 board:

sensors-detect shows that I need ipmisensors driver for my board. I 
patched kernel with stable drivers and got compile error (btw, patch 
failed and I applied it by hands.)

Then I freshed kernel source and applied last experimental driver:
ipmisensors-20070630-1330.diff

Result was the same - manual patch & compilation error:

   CC [M]  drivers/hwmon/ipmisensors.o

drivers/hwmon/ipmisensors.c:1326: warning: assignment from incompatible 
pointer type

make[2]: *** [drivers/hwmon/ipmisensors.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [drivers/hwmon] Error 2
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

So I need your advice how to monitor my sensors.

Best regards, Eugene.
