Actually some cases of overheating have to be handled by hardware, since
CPUs can heat so quickly (e.g. in case of a detached cooler) they will
be damaged before they can even switch states. For HDDs or some other
pieces, it would still be interesting.

Agreed. It would be nice to have a kernel interface to be notified of
such things, since the syslog sounds like a poor way of doing it.
