SRU Justification:

Impact: The lm-sensors module fails to load on some motherboards

Patch Description: Only request I/O ports 0x295-0x296 instead of the
full I/O address range. This solves a conflict with PNP resources on a
few motherboards.

Patch: Upstream cherry-pick;a=commit;h=12c0aa7d1af0468d5c8941ee30056bc3e74c2c07

Test Case: See Bug description.
