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