After upgrade from Debian 11 to Debian 12: plasmoids stopped working.

The problem computer is a Gateway NV79 laptop, with an Intel i3 CPU.

lshw: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU       M 330  @ 2.13GHz

4 cores.

Specifically, I'm happily using the "System Load" plasmoid on Debian 11
on another i3 (Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4130 CPU @ 3.40GHz) and just installed
the "Individual Core Usage" plasmoid, which also works fine.

But neither work on the NV79 after upgrading from Debian 11 to Debian 12.

It seems they can't find the proper sensors.  On the working i3,
"Individual Core Usage" -> "Sensor Details" show CPU 1 CPU2 CPU3 CPU 4.
On the non-working one, no amount of clicking on the "Sensors" field
produce anything.

On the non-working NV79, neither plasmoid produce any output.
Debian 11, per aptitude (kde-full) reports 5:111
Debian 12, per aptitude (kde-full) reports 5:142

Another data point:  On a Mac Pro, Debian 12 (kde-full 5:142)
with 2 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPUs  E5320  @ 1.86GHz, 4 cores each:
"Individual Core Usage" -> "Sensor Details" shows all 8 cores.

"Individual Core Usage" works fine
"System Load" produces no output.

Any idea what the problem could be? I'm reluctant to upgrade my main system
if things like this are going to break.  Can I provide some spefic data that
might help pinpoint the problem?
