OK, that would be a kernel-side problem then. I guess that you don't
have a /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon* directory created for the asus_atk0110?

I'm adding Luca to Cc, your best chance is probably to send him your
DSDT in private and let him investigate.

If an updated BIOS exists for your motherboard, you may have to use it.
