A while ago (when lm-sensors 2.6.0 came out, I think) there were big
warnings on the lm-sensors Web site to the effect that trying the
lm-sensors drivers on Thinkpads could cause permanent hardware
damage.  I don't see those warnings there now, but I also haven't seen
an announcement saying "we've solved the thinkpad problem".
