This is amusing, but for context I have a similar nct sensor on my Intel system
and it doesn't track the core temperatures at all.

At idle, it reports about 8°C cooler than the package/core sensors.

Under load, it climbs more slowly and reaches a peak ~30°C below the
package/core sensors.

Back to idle, it starts falling again while the cores still report 10°C higher.

So I don't think this sensor is sufficient even if we integrated it better.

Fortunately, I was able to find the AMD SB-TSI (sideband temperature sensor)
spec which supposedly documents communication with the CPU temperature sensor
over SMBus.
