Re: amdtemp still not working correctly

I also see the above when I boot a GENERIC kernel (with the builtin

And even when the driver module is built-in, it reports 0 degC for the

It did provide sensible values on *that* machine with a 6.99.2 kernel ?

The behaviour you describe looks like the cpu in *that* machine
has an errata...

Hmmm - I never noticed the values before while running 6.99.2.  But ...

I have four machines with Phenom-II X6, and three of them are indeed reporting 0 degC even on 6.99.2

        Motherboard           SB      CPU
        M4A88TD-M           SB850   1055T   reports 0
        M4A88TD-M           SB850   1090T   reports 0
        M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3  SB850   1090T   reports 0
        M4A88T-M            SB710   1090T   reports valid data

All four systems have the same 880G northbridge.

I'll have to check tomorrow to see if the SB710 reports valid data with the new code.

I can confirm that all systems which report valid values on 6.99.2 continue to report the same values on -current .

I can also confirm that the code properly attaches the amdtemp device on my FX-8150 Bulldozer machine.

I think I know why loading the module is not working. My custom kernel has neither amdtemp nor amdnb_misc driver. So even if I load amdtemp module, there is no amdnb_misc device to which it can attach. I'm building a new custom kernel now ...
