pciconf -l -v doesn't show an smbus on this system, even with the kernel
options compiled in.
healthd, I've tried, and it talks to some chips directly, but it hasn't
been updated in forever.
bsdhwmon looks like it did two releases and went unsupported, reports this
board as unsupported.
It would appear that older linux kernels find the hardware as follows on
this link http://hausheer.osola.com/docs/8 (I realize BSD and linux are
different, but perhaps the output there could help someone to know if
something there is supported).
Sadly, porting lm_sensors to BSD is hard because of all the kernel
dependencies and abstraction. But something more "universal" under BSD as
opposed to several years-outdated ports would be REALLY COOL.
