Is this because the thermal control is also broken and does not
support negative values? This is just a workaround papering over the
cracks?

I've worked on some systems where the thermal subsystem has controller
a heater. Mostly industrial systems, extended temperature range, and
you have to make sure the hardware is kept above -25C, otherwise the
DRAM timing goes to pot and the system crashed and froze.
