I just had a look at the documentation concerning this topic:


temp Current temperature as reported by thermal zone (sensor)
Unit: millidegree Celsius

It is expected to be in millidegree, so I think we should discuss,
modify and apply the patch.

Well well, looka here, it is an interface! I guess the temperature has
to be in millidegrees for better granularity or similar. Now userspace
has to do temp / 1000.0 and so on.

This is what the userspace applications like thermal-plugin of xfce-panel do.

In that case, the patch should be applied. I'll give it a run later.

Did you already give it a try?

Minor nitpick: Add the sysfs-api requirement to the commit message
instead of "userspace applications."

will change this, when submitting the patch to Andrew.
