15	Description
16	-----------
17	
18	This driver permits reading of registers providing power information
19	of AMD Family 15h processors.
20	
21	For AMD Family 15h processors the following power values can be
22	calculated using different processor northbridge function registers:
23	
24	* BasePwrWatts: Specifies in watts the maximum amount of power
25	  consumed by the processor for NB and logic external to the core.
26	* ProcessorPwrWatts: Specifies in watts the maximum amount of power
27	  the processor can support.
28	* CurrPwrWatts: Specifies in watts the current amount of power being
29	  consumed by the processor.
30	
31	This driver provides ProcessorPwrWatts and CurrPwrWatts:
32	* power1_crit (ProcessorPwrWatts)
33	* power1_input (CurrPwrWatts)
34	
35	On multi-node processors the calculated value is for the entire
36	package and not for a single node. Thus the driver creates sysfs
37	attributes only for internal node0 of a multi-node processor.
