Family 0xF, extended family 1, model 2.
Or, to quote a certain driver that happend to be posted on this list
static bool __devinit has_erratum_319(void)
* Erratum 319: The thermal sensor of older Family 10h processors
* (B steppings) may be unreliable.
return boot_cpu_data.x86 == 0x10 && boot_cpu_data.x86_model <= 2;
