My sysctl is reporting nonsense temps for my CPU:

[wam@kabini1, ~, 10:04:02pm] 357 % sysctl -A | egrep '(temperature|usage)'
dev.cpu.0.temperature: 10.6C
dev.cpu.0.cx_usage: 100.00% 0.00% last 445us
dev.cpu.1.temperature: 10.6C
dev.cpu.1.cx_usage: 100.00% last 11us
dev.cpu.2.temperature: 10.6C
dev.cpu.2.cx_usage: 100.00% last 21us
dev.cpu.3.temperature: 10.6C
dev.cpu.3.cx_usage: 100.00% last 9us
[wam@kabini1, ~, 10:04:10pm] 358 % sysctl -a | grep -i model
hw.model: AMD Sempron(tm) 3850 APU with Radeon(tm) R3
dev.rgephy.0.%pnpinfo: oui=0xe04c model=0x0 rev=0x0
[wam@kabini1, ~, 10:04:14pm] 359 % uname -a
FreeBSD kabini1.local 9.3-RELEASE-p13 FreeBSD 9.3-RELEASE-p13 #0: Tue

Room temp is about 75F, or ~23C. CPU is generating heat, 
thermodynamically impossible for it to be cooler than room temp. 
Obviously not critical, but I would like to know reasonably accurately 
how hot the CPU is in real time. Is this a sufficient bug report ? TIA ....
