+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).
+
