Example lm_sensors-2 driver

Though it is called the LM78 driver, there is not too much LM78 specific
code in it; it can better be seen as an example code skeleton for other
drivers. Right now, it creats a file /proc/sensors-test, which contains
a list of busses it registered itself on. Stupid, but very useful for
testing purposes!

You need a 2.0 kernel for lm78.o to insert (or hack the /proc system
specific parts; see lm78.c of lm_sensors version 1 how to do this).
Other parts of lm_sensors-2 are not tested for 2.1 kernels either, but
I am certain it won't work in this case :-).

See the TODO list to get some idea what is left to do, choose something
and implement it. Or not :-). But please, send a note to the mailing
list when you start on something, to avoid duplicate work...

Other notable changes:

the smbus_access routines now use (the more logical) i2c_adapter
structure, instead of smbus_adapter.
