    Interesting. The first number corresponds with the ACPI THM0
    temperature, but I can't see anything corresponding to THM1. Is there
    something that documents what all the temperatures are measuring in an
    X60? Thinkwiki doesn't seem to have any info.

    ezr:pts/1; cat /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal
    temperatures: 72 55 -128 65 40 -128 35 -128 51 53 -128 -128 -128 -128
    -128 -128

    It's set to auto. Presumably that means its tied into the temperature
    sensors and will be able to keep the temp under control...
