Mmh, playing around with the module a bit right now, I notice something
strange. Without the module loaded something in the hardware seem to
care about the cooling. In fact, the fan is not running at full speed as
I thought some minutes before. When I load the module without parameters
the fan stops for a short while and then starts to run at full speed
(well at least it sounds much louder than before and:
wolfi@halley:/sys/devices/temperatures $ cat fan_speed
This is with one loop. When I stop this loop, the fan slows down after a
while and finally stops. If I load the module in this stage the fan
starts again and I have the 6700 rpm.
I took the following table:
fan_speed=param cat fan_speed
Judging by ear, the maximum fan speed without your module loaded is
So, what drives my fan in absence of your module? The PMU?.
