Title:
  sensors command is not getting executed in Ubuntu 15.10 on PowerNV
  8335-GTA Hardware

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  New

Bug description:
  ---Problem Description---
  sensors command is not getting executed in Ubuntu 15.10 on PowerNV 8335-GTA 
Hardware
   
  ---uname output---
  Linux tul8fp 3.19.0-22-generic #22-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 16 17:15:17 UTC 2015 
ppc64le ppc64le ppc64le GNU/Linux
   
  Machine Type = P8 
    
  ---Steps to Reproduce---
  Install a PowerNV 8335-GTA machine with Ubuntu 15.10 ISO.
  Then load the kernel module ibmpowernv on the same.

  root@tul8fp:~# sensors
  No sensors found!
  Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need.
  Try sensors-detect to find out which these are.

  
  root@tul8fp:~# sensors-detect
  # sensors-detect revision 6209 (2014-01-14 22:51:58 +0100)
  # DMI data unavailable, please consider installing dmidecode 2.7
  # or later for better results.

  This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
  to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
  and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
  unless you know what you're doing.

  Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors.
  Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no): YES
  modprobe: FATAL: Module cpuid not found.

  Lastly, we can probe the I2C/SMBus adapters for connected hardware
  monitoring devices. This is the most risky part, and while it works
  reasonably well on most systems, it has been reported to cause trouble
  on some systems.
  Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no): YES
  Sorry, no supported PCI bus adapters found.

  Sorry, no sensors were detected.
  Either your system has no sensors, or they are not supported, or
  they are connected to an I2C or SMBus adapter that is not
  supported. If you find out what chips are on your board, check
  http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices for driver status.

  root@tul8fp:~# cat /boot/config-3.19.0-22-generic  | grep -i sensor | grep -i 
ibm
  CONFIG_SENSORS_IBMAEM=m
  CONFIG_SENSORS_IBMPEX=m
  CONFIG_SENSORS_IBMPOWERNV=m

   The issue is that there are upstream commits missing in Ubuntu 15.10 which 
are required here, these patches were specifically added to enable the sensors 
support on the OpenPower systems. So, they should ideally be backported for 
'sensors' command to work.
  To quickly verify this, I picked the upstream driver source file 
(drivers/hwmon/ibmpowernv.c), built it as modules as below:
  ubuntu@tul8fp:~/module$ cat Makefile 
  obj-m := ibmpowernv.o

  all:
        make -C /lib/modules//build M= modules

  clean:
        make -C /lib/modules//build M= clean
  ubuntu@tul8fp:~/module$ make
  .....
  ubuntu@tul8fp:~/module$ sudo insmod ibmpowernv.ko
  ........
  ubuntu@tul8fp:~/module$ sensors
  ibmpowernv-isa-0000
  Adapter: ISA adapter
  Core 8-15:    +1328545.8?C  
  Core 16-23:   +1328545.8?C  
  Core 24-31:   +1328545.8?C  
  Core 32-39:   +1328545.8?C  
  Core 40-47:   +1328545.8?C
  <snip>

  IAfter having a discussion with Neelesh, he has referred to the below
  upstream commit id's of the patches required for back-porting for
  Ubuntu 15.10 so that sensors could be enabled.

  8416915 hwmon: (ibmpowernv) Fix build error seen for some configurations
  3df2f59 hwmon: (ibmpowernv) pretty print labels
  2bcd378 hwmon: (ibmpowernv) add a label attribute
  1468163 hwmon: (ibmpowernv) add support for the new device tree
  9e4f74b hwmon: (ibmpowernv) add a helper routine create_hwmon_attr
  fcaf57b hwmon: (ibmpowernv) do not use the OPAL index for hwmon attribute 
names
  f9f54f1 hwmon: (ibmpowernv) change create_hwmon_attr_name() prototype
  ccc9ac6 hwmon: (ibmpowernv) add a convert_opal_attr_name() routine
  c4ad472 hwmon: (ibmpowernv) add a get_sensor_type() routine
  9612461 hwmon: (ibmpowernv) replace AMBIENT_TEMP by TEMP

  So, Ubuntu is required to get all the above patches to be incorporated
  into 15.10.
