I've been using the raid 5 module with the stock Sarge 2.4.27 kernel for quite some time but now when I try to load the module the system just hangs. This only started happening after I apt-got lm-sensors. Could anybody provide any help on this?

The strace of the command is:
Code:
# strace modprobe raid5
...
