Ditto. Though I still think it should use kmem_alloc(9)... The man-page is
nice too, but I wonder should this be removed:

     "[...]  Whereas on OpenBSD the native drivers have to be specifically
     disabled should their presence be judged unnecessary, on the lm(4) and
     it(4) are not probed provided that acpi(4) is configured and the system
     potentially supports the hardware monitoring chip through ACPI."
