    Default Experimental read_ati_extension patch

    This patch is experimental as it's based on undocumented (officially) functions in aticonfig, however it should work fine on any HD series ATI card.
    The arguments to aticonfig were obtained from here: http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showp...2&postcount=18

    This patch will read the GPU temp, current 3D clock and default 3D clock (there's all sorts of other info it could read, but let's start simple).

    Thanks, just committed though please test as I won't be back in my office until next week (with R600 hardware) and I quickly changed a few things in it to clean it up.

    I have been informed by AMD that this patch will only work with R600 hardware and that it will break in the future (hopefully when delivering a solid implementation).

    I thought as much, but at least this should work in the interim.

    I'll test the committed code just a soon as git will let me pull down the changes.
