Delete lm-sensors from package.mask and add it to package.keywords as
follows:

sys-apps/lm-sensors ~x86

This will make portage always install the ~x86 version of the package.

Correct.  It is superseded by package.keywords usage.  We don't remove
functionality without having a good reason.  The -U option was really
ugly and didn't work well with dependencies.  The package.keywords route
works perfectly and is the way we will be supporting in the future.
