Okay. I got i2c_i801.ko and coretemp.ko created and loaded in the 
kernel. The CONFIG_ACPI_SBS=m parameter creates two modules: sbs.ko and 
sbshc.ko; modprobe sbs loades both; hence no smartbatt. The relevant 
section from sensors-detect output is

Next adapter: SMBus I801 adapter at 18a0 (i2c-0)
Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): YES

and it calls for smartbatt. Instead I loaded sbs.ko. The current output 
of sensors is

-> sensors
coretemp-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0:      +56°C  (high =  +100°C)

Should the output show also info on the battery? Am I still missing 
something configuring ls_sensors?

Thanks,
