I was thinking about using the 'force' parameter to givie the address
explicitly to the module, the device may be on non standard port.
sensors-detect is usually more capable of detecting devices than kernel

Haven't read the source of this module, but you'll probably have to compile
kernel (or at least the module) with different .config (one that enables
