lm_sensors lm85 problems


Hey people! I installed lm_sensors, and when I ran sensors-detect:

#----cut here----
# I2C adapter drivers
modprobe i2c-i801
modprobe i2c-isa
# I2C chip drivers
# Warning: the required module lm85 is not currently installed on your system.
# For status of 2.6 kernel ports see http://secure.netroedge.com/~lm78/supported.html
# If driver is built-in to the kernel, or unavailable, comment out the following line.
modprobe lm85
# Warning: the required module eeprom is not currently installed on your system.
# For status of 2.6 kernel ports see http://secure.netroedge.com/~lm78/supported.html
# If driver is built-in to the kernel, or unavailable, comment out the following line.
modprobe eeprom
# Warning: the required module smbus-arp is not currently installed on your system.
# For status of 2.6 kernel ports see http://secure.netroedge.com/~lm78/supported.html
# If driver is built-in to the kernel, or unavailable, comment out the following line.
modprobe smbus-arp
# no driver for Nat. Semi. PC87372 Super IO Fan Sensors yet
# sleep 2 # optional
/usr/local/bin/sensors -s # recommended
#----cut here----


But I don't see any of these drivers on make menuconfig of my kernel -> on Device Drivers - Hardware Monitoring Support and Device Drivers - I2C support. I have already selected everything as modules but I only see, i.e. Device Drivers - LM75, LM83 and LM90. Nothing about LM85. The same happens with the other modules. Do I need to patch my Kernel or something??? Thanks!

Btw: Kernel 2.6.17

Should be there at least it is in my kernel config.

Code:
grep -i lm8 /boot/config-2.6.17-ck1
CONFIG_SENSORS_LM80=m
CONFIG_SENSORS_LM83=m
CONFIG_SENSORS_LM85=m
# CONFIG_SENSORS_LM87 is not set

Ok, problem solved. I didn't enable:

Code maturity level options -> Prompt for development and/or incomplete code/drivers

After enabling it, the options were there and now I can run perfectly lm_sensors
