$ modinfo therm_adt746x
filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.8-aragorn/kernel/drivers/macintosh/therm_adt746x.ko
parm:           fan_speed:Specify fan speed (0-255) when lim < temp < lim+8 (default 128)
parm:           limit_adjust:Adjust maximum temperatures (50°C cpu, 70°C gpu) by N °C.

Compile it as a module and you can load the module  with the the params fan_speed
and limit_adjust e.g in /etc/modules ;-) The solution to adjust the
gpu temp linear to the cpu temp isn't a good one yet. We have to
control them separate. Maybe Ben is reading this an can tell some
