AMD Fusion / Bobcat Core - Is there any chance that a new shiny processor family will also be supported in the near future? I know You guys work in spare time and support for the machine itself (amd family 14) is just coming but if anything I am willing to test any changes to the new module as I have just bougth new shiny Zacate E-350

If only I had the hardware to write it... I would really like to do that, maybe with your help in time I will be able to.

sure I will help. I have few years of Gentooing behind me so applying patches and setting apropriate kernel options for testing and debuging should be of no problem.
Just let me know what You need

After testing stuff around with help from DavidG it turned out that current 0.4.4 alpha 2 driver works for newer family of AMD machnes as well. Reason is that the VID values are stored at exactly the same register in the same bits. One may be able to do some undervolting writing slightly higher values to /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpufreq/phc_vids.

test results

hardware:
vendor_id : AuthenticAMD
cpu family : 20
model : 1
model name : AMD E-350 Processor

default:
echo "20 21 42" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/phc_vids
reached safe levels:
echo "26 28 52" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/phc_vids

setting any of the 3 values to even 1 digit higher resulted in crash after longer testing
