'Lo all!

I recently installed an asus TX motherboard at work on which I linux runs
happily. This motherboard comes with 2 heat sensors (CPU temp and
Motherboard TEMP), 3 Fan Monitors (CPU Fan, Chassis FAN, and Power Supp
FAN) as well as Voltage monitors.

I am wondering is anyone is thinking about supporting these features of
the chipset, a bit like watchdog has /dev/temperature.. maybe a
/dev/fanx , /dev/tempx and /dev/voltagex ? I can see the system status
from the BIOS, (which currently reads a nice 5443rpm for the CPU fan and
50C for the CPU temp) but it would be nice from linux itself. This
information could lend itself to many useful apps, such as automatic
powerdown and stuff.
