Ticket #2262 (closed task: fixed)
Stop depending on libsysfs
|Reported by:||khali||Owned by:||khali|
libsysfs is being deprecated, so we will have to move away from it. It didn't necessarily add much value anyway, and I suspect it was slowing down sensors_init() quite a bit, and was increasing its memory usage too.
Additionally, I noticed that libsysfs silently discards device attributes if it can't read from them. This could cause sensors features to be missing in case of transient error at initialization time. This is one more reason to no longer depend on libsysfs.
