Subject: [PATCH v4 0/6] acerhdf/thermal: adding new models, appropriate governor and minor clean up 


This patch series is intended to:

  * Introduce "manual mode" support (Patch 1 & 2), which is needed to control
    the fan of a few new models.

  * Add an appropriate thermal governor (Patch 3 & 4).  Manipulating and
    fiddling around with the step-wise governor has been a very fragile thing
    in the past and as it broke again, I used the opportunity to add a two
    point thermal governor which implements the actual fan handling required by
    acerhdf and puts from my point of view things straight.

  * Do some minor clean up like:
      - adding second trip point for critical temperature (Patch 5)
      - removing _t suffix from struct which isn't typedef and replace unsigned
        char by u8 (Patch 6)

Thanks and kind regards,
