If you take a look at:'ll notice the AMD K8 device row talks about how there is a bug
in recent kernels that may cause incorrect values to be reported. It
mentions that kernel 2.6.29 might help.

I was scratching my head at the values returned there too, but I was
also scratching my head at some values for free disk space last week
until I realized that I had to do some extra maths for it to make
sense. I wonder if that's the same issue here, or if it's the kernel
thing. The system I set that up on this morning has an AMD K8, and is
running 2.6.18, so I think that's a distinct possibility in my case.
