Fan control

Fan control needs to be explicitly allowed:

FILE /etc/modprobe.d/thinkpad_acpi.conf
options thinkpad_acpi fan_control=1

Turn off:

root #echo level 0 > /proc/acpi/ibm/fan

Maximum measured speed:

root #echo level 7 > /proc/acpi/ibm/fan

Automatic speed (default):

root #echo level auto > /proc/acpi/ibm/fan

Maximum speed:

root #echo level disengaged > /proc/acpi/ibm/fan
