According to the wikipedia page:

 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_Fusion

currently Fusion (14h) is Bobcat only, with possible
Bulldozer based systems in 2012 (and with an "enhanced
Bobcat" somewhere in between).

Linux support for these systems may still be in progress,
MCE & Oprofile support was merged in 2.6.36 but support
for the 14h and 12h family temperature sensors was only
merged in 2.6.38.

cheers,
Chris
