I had hoped this might work for my i2500, but the i8k module won't install.
insmod gives the oh-so-helpful "No such device" error.  Any idea _what_
device?  Perhaps /proc/i8k.  Any ideas how I could work around this?  I'm
suspecting it won't help much anyway, since i8kutils seems to require
/proc/apm too, and any attempt to do anything with apm on the 2500

One of these days I'm going to have to learn how to debug these things....
