With respect to sensors the conversation has already been had, and I fix
is already queued and should come out in the sensors release due out in
a week or so. So sensors should be fixed before this code is merged
into Linus's kernel.
Now why something minor like sensors that nothing seems to depend
strongly on should stop a system from booting is a huge question.
So I am going to have the conversation to triage what is up with
systemd. That seems totally unexpected.
