I have had experience with HDAMA boards, installed what I believe is the 
first Opteron cluster in the UK, which used HDAMA boards.
I worked on getting lm_sensors working on them, but found as you describe.

I suggest getting the BMC management cards, then you could do IPMI based 
monitoring. I seem to recall though that you would have to order these 
at build time,
as the sockets for BMC card are not necessarily soldered onto the 
motherrboard, ie there may just be a patch with solder tags on it.
I could be very wrong here.
