Correct, when the acerhdf driver is switched into kernel controlled
mode and the fan is spinning, it stays spinning until the temperature
goes above the fan-on trip point and then below the fan-off trip
point. then the fan shuts off.

I don't have an opinion on how this is fixed, so do whatever you want
with my patch. Maybe you should drop it entirely if we do end up
applying Peter's fix.
