AMD --
The Linux 3.18 kernel will bring support for reading the core temperature of AMD's forthcoming "Carrizo" APUs.

The hwmon pull request sent in for the 3.18 kernel adds support to the k10temp kernel driver for reading temperatures of the "F15h M60h", a.k.a. Carrizo. A small patch is needed to provide support to the temperature driver for Carrizo on Linux.

AMD Carrizo APUs are to feature next-generation Excavator CPU cores and GCN class graphics. The first Carrizo APUs are expected in either December or early 2015 based on current reports. AMD's Excavator architecture brings AVX2 and RDRAND support along with possible DDR4 memory controller support and other improvements over Steamroller.

The hwmon pull request for Linux 3.18 also brings a new MEN14F021P00 BMC HWMON driver. Additionally, several existing drivers were updated to make use of a new hwmon API for the kernel.
