This means that ACPI claimed the whole chip for its own use, preventing
native drivers (dme1737 in your case) from using it.
You can bypass this check by booting with acpi_enforce_resources=lax,
for testing purpose. I wouldn't recommend it as a permanent solution
though, because if ACPI is really using the chip, the concurrent
accesses are likely to conflict at some point with unpredictable (but
generally bad) results.

Juerg, can you please add the chip to sensors-detect so that it is
