This is the chip that was improperly detected as an LM96000 (driver
lm85) beforehand. So this problem is fixed in sensors-detect now. Not
sure about the lm85 driver itself.

Not really. The conclusions are pretty clear.
1* The WPCD377I doesn't include sensors. So what appeared to be
   supported by the lm85 driver, isn't.
2* The sensors on all these Intel board series are in the ICH, but we
   do not support this yet.

So at this point, no hardware monitoring on your board, until we
finally get support for AMT/HECI. This is tracked in:
