Description
-----------
This driver permits reading the DTS (Digital Temperature Sensor) embedded
inside Intel CPUs. This driver can read both the per-core and per-package
temperature using the appropriate sensors. The per-package sensor is new;
as of now, it is present only in the SandyBridge platform. The driver will
show the temperature of all cores inside a package under a single device
directory inside hwmon.

Temperature is measured in degrees Celsius and measurement resolution is
1 degree C. Valid temperatures are from 0 to TjMax degrees C, because
the actual value of temperature register is in fact a delta from TjMax.

Temperature known as TjMax is the maximum junction temperature of processor,
which depends on the CPU model. See table below. At this temperature, protection
mechanism will perform actions to forcibly cool down the processor. Alarm
may be raised, if the temperature grows enough (more than TjMax) to trigger
the Out-Of-Spec bit. Following table summarizes the exported sysfs files:

All Sysfs entries are named with their core_id (represented here by 'X').
tempX_input	 - Core temperature (in millidegrees Celsius).
tempX_max	 - All cooling devices should be turned on (on Core2).
tempX_crit	 - Maximum junction temperature (in millidegrees Celsius).
tempX_crit_alarm - Set when Out-of-spec bit is set, never clears.
		   Correct CPU operation is no longer guaranteed.
tempX_label	 - Contains string "Core X", where X is processor
		   number. For Package temp, this will be "Physical id Y",
		   where Y is the package number.

On CPU models which support it, TjMax is read from a model-specific register.
On other models, it is set to an arbitrary value based on weak heuristics.
If these heuristics don't work for you, you can pass the correct TjMax value
as a module parameter (tjmax).
