A new version of lm-sensors has been released recently, which introduces
a new ABI, but very limited API change (only some enums). This new
upstream version notably adds support for the new hwmon device
classification introduced in kernel 4.19. It is therefore important for
buster if it is still planned to ship it with a 4.19 kernel. When using
the old lm-sensors version with a 4.19 kernel, some hwmon sensors are
not visible anymore.

Note that the -dev package is wrongly versioned. I think transitioning
to a version-less one can be done in a later step to not entangle things
too much.

According to the transition tracker, 23 packages are affected by this
transition.

Thanks for considering
Aurelien
