Currently, lm_sensors depends on sysfsutils, but the latter is not needed. Indeed, CHANGES in lm_sensors source says:
3.0.1 (2008-01-28)
libsensors: No longer depend on libsysfs (#2262)

Moreover, the INSTALL file does not list sysfsutils as a build or runtime dependency:

Build-time dependencies:
* GNU make
* gcc
* bison
* flex
* rrd header files (optional, for sensord)

Run-time dependencies:
* perl (for sensors-detect)
* rrdtool >= 1.2.1 (optional, for sensord)
* proper kernel configuration (see below)

Hence, please remove sysfsutils dep. Thanks!
This task depends upon
