This means that the BIOS is claiming the hwmon chip for itself;
starting from 2.6.31 Linux started enforcing this claim, see
http://lm-sensors.org/wiki/FAQ/Chapter3#Mysensorshavestoppedworkinginkernel2.6.31.

Asus exposes the hardware monitoring data trough an ACPI interface. If
you send me a copy of /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT I'll see if
there's something usable.
