Asus M2NPV-VM / IT87 : What worked in LM_Sensors 2.9.1 doesn't in 2.10.2 anymore

Description (last modified by khali) (diff)
I have an Asus M2NPV-VM mobo on which I used a Mandriva 2007.0 with a 2.6.12 kernel and lm_sensors 2.9.1. With this, I had an "IT87" chip recognized on the mobo, and it was working quite good except for a little weirdness (voltages reported were crazy if I set "fan2" to anything else than "ignore fan2", and voltages were plain good with fan2 ignored... Weird enough).
I upgraded to Mandriva 2007.1, kernel 2.6.17, lm_sensors 2.10.2 (with basically the same sensors.conf file and modules loaded, except that now "it87" causes a "hwmon_vid" module to be loaded, wich I don't think existed before...?).
But now :
# lsmod | egrep "i2c|it87" i2c_dev 8036 0 i2c_nforce2 6592 0 it87 18852 0 hwmon_vid 3296 1 it87 i2c_isa 4192 1 it87 i2c_core 17344 6 i2c_dev,i2c_nforce2,nvidia,it87,eeprom,i2c_isa # sensors No sensors found! Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need. Try sensors-detect to find out which these are. # sensors-detect [...blah-blah...] Driver `it87' (should be inserted): Detects correctly: * ISA bus, address 0x290 (Busdriver `i2c-isa') Chip `ITE IT8716F Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9) [...blah-blah...]
So sensors-detect still sees the IT87, but the true module, once loaded, doesn't find the chip and complains "No sensors !" where it was working good with previous version of lm_sensors.
Please help and advise...
