Bug#584187: linux-image-powerpc64: windfarm drivers fail to be loaded on boot
When this host boots, it requires the 'windfarm_pm112' driver loaded,
otherwise the fans turn on at full speed and don't turn off.
If I manually run:
$ sudo modprobe windfarm_pm112
the fans immediately cycle down to a normal operating speed and stay
This is a regression; for the past several years the fans would be
controlled properly on boot. It was only when rebooting a few weeks
ago that this problem became apparent.
I don't know whether this is a problem with the kernel package, or
which specific upgrade introduced the regression, but it's related to
detecting whether the drivers need to be loaded automatically. Perhaps
udev? How would I diagnose the change further?
