Good thing you did. :)

It both does and does not depending on what I do.

Well I hope this helps. I can both duplicated and fix the problem under
2.4. To duplicate all I have to do is compile the kernel without ISA
support and, consequently, not use the ISA bus to read the sensors data.
2.4 then displays the exact same symptoms that 2.5 does. If I compile
ISA in and use it for the data then I get my data and kernel works fine.
To test if all was well I compiled 2.5 (for the next test) and constantly
checked the temperature. It went up during the compile nicely and dropped
when it stopped so I'll assume that the sensors stuff works perfectly
fine under 2.4 with ISA.

Next I booted into 2.5. I loaded i2c-core, i2c-dev, i2c-sensor, i2c-isa
and i2c-piix4. All's fine. Loaded adm1021 (which is the correct driver
btw - it's the one the sensors-detect program detected) and boom, kernel
is molasses. Powercycle and try again, this time only doing:

modprobe i2c-isa
modprobe adm1021

Kernel works fine but no sensor data. find returned only empty directories.
I then did:

modprobe i2c-piix4

and boom! molasses again and dmesg was filled with the errors I previously

I hope this helps. It seems that there's a distinct lack of interaction
between the i2c/sensors code and isa and that is what might be causing
the problem... but that's just what it looks like to me.

Now, if you need any more debugging done, yell. :)
