Looks great (except the alignment which is discussable, but that's not
really important).

Yes, it is.

Obviously, we could live without the extra precision, but that's a funny

No, you're right. I'll need some time to implement what Alex suggested.
It's something relatively new for us, and I don't know how we can handle
this both cleanly and user-friendly.

I don't really understand what you mean, so yes, you must have had
something strangely configured before.

They generate different signals when reached. The exact actions depend
on how your hardware is wired. For example, being over temp_high may
trigger an extra fan or CPU throttling, while being over tcrit would
shut down the system. Read the LM90 data sheet if your interested in the
