Looks like this would require a completely new driver, so someone with a board
would have to have the time to write a driver.

I added your request to the lm-sensors device support page.

I added support for the IT8510E to sensors-detect. It would be great if you can download
http://roeck-us.net/linux/sensors/sensors-detect and run it to see if it works.
