I can confirm frequent lockups on GPU load (CPU load doesn't matter,
that's handled fine by the thermostat). In case it matters: the OF device
tree seems to indicate that the two fans aren't CPU and GPU but rather
left and right side of the rear exhaust grille. So they need to be set to
the same speed, I guess. At least on the Albooks.

Does your friend also experience flicker in the console, Ben? Nothing I
tried with radeonfb helped ...
