The probe order in sensors-detect doesn't make sense

Description

The order in which we probe for sensor chips in sensors-detect doesn't make sense. We start with the less reliable and more risky probe (SMBus) to end with the less risky and more reliable (Super-I/O, CPU and PCI devices). It would make much more sense the other way around.

This will require some changes to the alias detection code. For now, alias detection assumes that I2C/SMBus detection is done before ISA and Super-I/O detection.

  • status changed from new to assigned

In r5496, I moved the alias detection after all the chip detections, so the point raised in comment:2 is addressed.

  • status changed from assigned to closed
  • resolution set to fixed

Done in r5498, r5503, r5504 and r5511, documented in r5515.
