What revision of that have you? It's not clear to me tha this fan level
stuff, documented with rev 1.10, was ever MFC'd to 6-STABLE. If I'm
diffing the right versions it appears that it wasn't, and the comment on
22.214.171.124 (6.X) says only 'MFC: 1.11, 1.12', but that seems not so, if I'm
reading the diffs against any of those versions right (incl 1.14 @ 7.0)

Not that there hasn't been lots of interesting discussion here, but
I reckon you may do better there, as it's 100% an ACPI issue. It's
not much busier than -mobile usually.

I'd not known which of these were which before, thanks Richard!
my %sensors = ( "1", "CPU",
"2", "Mini PCI Module",
"5", "Built-in battery",
"6", "UltraBay battery",
"7", "Built-in battery",
"8", "UltraBay battery");
so your GPU is running pretty hot too ..

A fresh start in -acpi might still find something useful for 6-STABLE,
hopefully I won't languish as badly as 5 did after 6 was released :) but
yes I'll be trying 7 now there may be a coherent set of ports/packages.
