Hi,

according to AMD (
http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_type/white_papers_and_tech_docs/41322.pdf
) not all AMD K10 CPUs have defect sensors. In fact only DR-* revisions
are affected. All CPUs with Socket AM3 as well as all Phenom II Processors
and some Opterons are unaffected (DA-*, RB-*, HY-*).
Please reconsider the statement "Embedded sensors are known to be
unreliable, and won't be supported ever.". Linux should not lack
temperature sensor support for such popular Processors.

Kind regards,

 Jan
