How to disable acpi thermal?

The man pages don't appear to be very helpful.  How do I
disable ACPI thermal from shutting down my machine when it
incorrectly is detecting false temperature readings?
Do I have to disable ACPI altogether?  Can I safely kill
the acpi_thermal thread?

Thermal zone 0 skyrockets past 110C in a couple of minutes
when trying to build a kernel.  All the other zones stay
relatively static.  I suspect something is wrong somewhere
because this machine is very lightly loaded and has never
had a problem until now.  I just upgraded it from 4.x to
7.0.
