No, it's really a workaround since the hwmon chip may be used by
"something" else (i.e. the firmware); on older boards it's somewhat
safe to override the exclusion logic since the chip is not actively
used (it's accessed only through the ACPI interface); on newer board
this is not true, there's a controller chip which uses the hwmon
independently.
