Theo sent a message to misc@ on Sunday that caught my eye. He wrote a new sensor driver: sdtemp(4) (with a very small amount of code). This is a driver for a specific temperature sensor for memory modules and can be probed via an I2C bus.
In the post, Theo notes that he was unable to get his hands on a DIMM with this sensor chip. However, he managed to get his hands on the specific sensor chip itself and soldered it to a DIMM he already had!
It always amazes me how tenacious the developers are to support anything and everything they can get their hands on; and even some things they can't. If you happen to have this particular piece of gear, please send in a dmesg(8) to email@example.com.
Of course this driver is only in -current.
