On this 256th day of 2007, it is my great pleasure to announce the
completion of my GSoC2007 project on porting the sysctl hardware sensors
framework from OpenBSD to FreeBSD.
All of the things that were planned to be ported from OpenBSD base
system to FreeBSD have now been ported.
The userland part of the framework is entirely source-code compatible
with OpenBSD. For example, you can take OpenBSD's stock sensorsd(8),
and it'll compile and work on FreeBSD with no modifications.
The framework is quite self-contained, so I think it is a safe bet to at
least try to get it into the tree even at this point, when the code
freeze is taking place in preparation for RELENG_7 branching.
Therefore, I hereby request that this patch be considered for immediate
inclusion into FreeBSD's main CVS repository.
The complete CVS patch is available from:
For backup purposes, a copy of this CVS patch is also available in my
perforce branch, although it has tainted $P4$ tags in individual files,
so use perforce as a last resort:
Exact details on how to apply and test the patch are available in my
LiveJournal, along with certain other comments:
If you have an Intel Core 2 processor, or a Winbond or ITE Tech Super
I/O chip on your board, then please test and report back on how your
