Subject: [PATCH] acerhdf: Fix fan activation with new thermal governor

From: Borislav Petkov <bp@...e.de>

The new step_wise thermal governor wasn't able to handle the one-trip
point design of acerhdf where we want to turn off the fan if we go under
the 'fanoff' temperature and to turn it on only after exceeding the
'fanon' temperature.

Do that by looking at the current fan state and return the temperature
accordingly.

Guys,

this fixes acerhdf to the old behavior. Testing here looks ok - I'd
appreciate if you could verify this too.

Thanks.
