I don't have a smb device in dmesg listed. But I have
those in the kernel configuration:

	# System management bus
	device          smbus
	device          iicbus
	device          iicsmb
	device          iicbb
	device          iic

So I can read temperature values using xmbmon. With
the mbmon program, it should work similarly. OS is
8.2-STABLE on x86 here.
