Question is not what happens if you ran sensors-detect again; that is
not the point and has nothing to do with the ability to load the module
Question is what you get when running the "sensors" command after
loading the asus_atk0110 module.

Did you get the acpi error message as described ?
If so, the link does provide the answer:
"If you want to restore the old behaviour (which might be dangerous)
add: "acpi_enforce_resources=lax" to the kernel cmdline when booting (or
add it in grub.conf to make this permanent)."
Just remember the "which might be dangerous". You might be better off
with asus_atk0100 if it works for you.
