That can approximatively be done using
fan_speed=X (where X between 0 and 255, i use 128). This
way, if temp > limit, the fan will start at specified speed.
If temp > limit+8, fan will run full speed. Speed will decrease
to specified when temp < limit+6, and stop when temp < limit-2.

There's also a limit_decrease=N parameter to lower the max
temperatures (which are 50°C (CPU) and 70°C (GPU)) by N°C.
