The impisensor driver is abandoned for years. I won't look into it as I
have many other drivers to work on and I don't have supported hardware.
In the meantime, my recommendation is to use ipmitool. It is _not_
integrated with libsensors, but other than that, it should report the
sensor values properly.

I already have it ready:
