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

Hi Jonathan,

Well, with acpi-osi=Linux eeepci-wmi is NOT loaded (no need to blacklist it), 
anbd eeepc-laptop is loaded instead. In this case, pwmcapable kernel-modules 
are loaded, so that pwmconfig will start and is working.

If eeepc-wmi is loaded, and IO start the command pwmconfig, then I get the 
message no pwmcapable hardware found.

I suppose, I already send the exact output before, if needed, I will sed it

Great, I will likely test it. Can you build a kernel-package for it? So it is 
easy for me to install this kernel and deinstall after testing, without 
getting in danger to destroy my system. I need it for work!

I am happy if I can help with my little knowledge.
