Bug#649253: eeepc-wmi does not seem to adjust fan speed, but prevents use of fancontrol

Hi Jonathan, 

I tried the latest kernel from experimental, but as expected, there is no 
difference. Same as with the other kernels.

For those, who are interested, I advise not to use eeepc-wmi, as doing so, the 
fan will NOT speed up, even when the cpu is getting hot. To say correct: It is 
speeding up, but only a very little bit! You may overheat your cpu.

I reverted back to the "acpi-osi="Linux"-workaround, which is working very 
well on this computer.

Ben, I think, you understand the situation, as we talked about it some time 
ago. I might remember, that you also told me, that the hardware of this 
computer is not documented and so developing might be impossible.

I doubt, that many people are using an EEEPC 1005HGO with linux, most people 
are having a better machine (with N280 cpu or better) and the newer API.

In my case I can use the workaround, and doing development for a single person 
is really(!) too much of a good thing!

So it is ok for me, when this bug may be closed.

Otherwise I will be pleased, when I can help with some testing.

Thank you very much for your time and help!

Best regards
