lm-sensors gives the following output for this machine:

acpitz-virtual-0
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:       +60.0°C  (crit = +105.0°C)                  
temp2:       +56.0°C  (crit = +105.0°C)                  
temp3:       +35.3°C  (crit = +105.0°C)                  
temp4:       +75.0°C  (crit = +110.0°C)                  
temp5:       +65.0°C  (crit = +256.0°C)                  
temp6:       +63.0°C  (crit = +105.0°C)                  

coretemp-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0:      +66.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)  

coretemp-isa-0001
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 1:      +66.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) 

I would like to know what the acpitz-virtual sensor is. It seems to be some sort of replication of acpi thermal zones but /proc/acpi only contains

ac_adapter
battery
button
event
wakeup

so there don't seem to be any temperature sensors. Can somebody make sense of this?
