I wouldn't take my particular use case as evidence they are common, or
even they really exist.  I got here because I loaded a hwmon driver
using the _DSD/PRP0001 mechanism in ACPI.  In that case, those devices
have never worked with 'sensors'  Therefore, in that context, this
change is just fixing a bug.

I can't say much about other apps writing against the current sysfs
names.  18 months seems like a long time.
