Comment (by David Asher <david.asher at caviumnetworks.com>):

 I tested this out and ran into 2 problems before I got the lm_sensors part

 1. on my FC4 system the directory /proc/acpi/thermal_zone exists but has
 nothing in it.  As such the mainserver.cpp code for acpi gets run, and the
 else clause for lmsensors never gets a chance.  I fixed this by using a
 bool to say whether the acpi logic found a temperature or not and use that
 bool in place of the else.

 2. the patch is freeing the return value of fopen.  This results in a
 segfault (fopen doesn't malloc, it returns from a statically allocated
 array).  Removing the free got things working.

 I'll attach my changed diffs...
