Thank you! It is now working. I removed the eeprom module. What is this
module? I put it in my /etc/rc.local after running sensors-detect but it
seems to be unused by my system... I had alse to disable lm_sensors
services to prevent the loading of this module, so I don't know for what
these services are useful.

eeprom is used for SMBUS.  You could have also just applied the patch
instead of disabling eeprom.
