Spelling: positive.

If you make loadConfig() always return -1 on error then you also want
to clean up the error message that is printed when reloadLib() fails,
to no longer include the (now pointless) error value.

This patch adds the following compilation warning:
prog/sensord/lib.c: In function ‘loadConfig’:
prog/sensord/lib.c:72: warning: ‘ret’ may be used uninitialized in this function
Please fix.

I do like a blank line before the first include ;)

Typo: configuration.

The original code was logging that the configuration file was being
reloaded. This seemed a useful feature to me, why did you remove it?

I suggest dropping the "while" for consistency.

As a side note, reading the configuration from stdin doesn't strike me
as something terribly useful. I wouldn't mind dropping support for
this, to make the code more simple.

This call to sensors_strerror() is clearly incorrect, fopen() isn't
part of the libsensors API ;)

The logic looks all wrong to me. In reload mode, you have to call
sensors_cleanup() _before_ sensors_init()!

It would also be nice to consistently use "config file" or
"configuration file" in all messages. I think the latter has my
preference.
