Could you try the -pseries kernel i have announced in another thread and which

It will not help for your fan though, but it will be a 64bit kernel, which
means it is better supported, and should allow you to run 64bit apps if
needed. There is now also the biarch glibc that allows that, and the biarch
toolchain. To add to it, the glibc in question should (but i have not checked)
be NPTL friendly.
