See eric's suggestion to boot with nocrt=1, then.  But I'd like to know
if thermal gives meaningful numbers in that case.

As for fan control, I have been told that's in hardware anyway (except
in the case where people are using the unsupported eee.ko module to
implement their own fan control in userspace). I think with critical
temperature turned off, thermal just reports back what it thinks the
temperature is and doesn't do anything else to influence the operation
of the Eee.  Though it would be good if someone who knows the kernel
code could confirm this, or else read the source yourself.
