after a clean install to move from 5.4-RELEASE to 6.0-RELEASE, I've 
noticed a slight increase in temperature (when close to 100% idel) from 
~39C to ~43C.

Okay, this is probably nothing to worry about, but I was wondering if 
anyone else has seen this and, more to the point, if there's an explanation.

Some data for you:

ACPI APIC Table: <AMIINT VIA_K8  >     (blanks from the actual output)
CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3500+ (note that I'm not running amd64)
real memory  = 1073676288 (1023 MB)
avail memory = 1045983232 (997 MB)
MB: MSI K8T Neo2
Chipset: VIA K8T800

While on the subject, although I'm not sure the two are related, do you 
think the following output is normal?

# vmstat -i
interrupt                          total       rate
irq6: fdc0                            10          0
irq13: npx0                            1          0
irq14: ata0                        11940          1
irq15: ata1                         1070          0
irq16: re0                         81907          7
irq18: pcm0                       314901         28
irq21: uhci0 uhci1+                43091          3
cpu0: timer                     22203789       1999 <--- ?!?
Total                           22656709       2040

Also worth mentioning is that "dmesg" displays the following:

cpu0: <ACPI CPU> on acpi0
acpi_perf0: invalid _PSS package (repeated 33 times)
acpi_throttle0: <ACPI CPU Throttling> on cpu0

Ideas, anyone?

Thanks in advance,
