[lm-sensors] [PATCH v7 2/2] Use "request_muxed_region" in it87 hwmon drivers

02 - Chages to hwmon it87 driver to use "request_muxed_region"
Serialize access to the hardware by using "request_muxed_region" macro defined
by Alan Cox. Call to this macro will hold off the requestor if the resource is
currently busy. "superio_enter" will return an error if call to 
"request_muxed_region" fails. Rest of the code change is to ripple an error
return from superio_enter to the top level.
