Ah, this seems to be the missing part. We use Centos 5 with kernel 2.6.18, Therefore the missing alarm support is explained.

Maybe we would try backporting the missing functionality to kernel 2.6.18. For our different systems, in sum we use the following kernel modules related to lm_sensors:

* it87 (you already said that this one is affected)
* pc87360
* i2c-i801
* i2c-isa
* eeprom

For backporting we'd need to know which kernel modules are affected. My guess is, beside of the it87 it's just the pc87360 - am I right?
