Hi Adrian,

If you make a request at elrepo.org (either on the bug tracker or 
mailing list), then I'm sure I can backport the vt1211 driver for you 
and make it available at elrepo.org. From a quick look, lm_sensors (in 
5.4) appears to already support vt1211 so you should just need the 
kernel module for it.
