pwm value range is limited to (0, 255), so we'll have to find another
solution. I think we'll have to define a per-system data structure
which holds the fan speed range and the fan multiplier, and attach it
to the dmi data. Currently, .driver_data is used directly to override
the fan multiplier; it will have to point to a configuration data
structure with both fan multiplier and maximum fan speed value.
Unless someone has a better idea, of course.
