The current code certainly doesn't work right..  I've got an FX2 running
an x86_64 kernel and it always reports 40C as the temp, regardless.
When I'm logged in and run "sensors" manually I see:

Adapter: PCI adapter
Core0 Temp:
Core1 Temp:

Not sure if it's just not capable of showing two CPU temps, or if
it doesn't like my particular lm_sensor driver?

I'm happy to help debug -- I'd really like a port-6544 method to
read the CPU temps on that system.
