SubjectRe: High latency on /sys/class/thermal
acpidump output attached.

I found no latency on battery iterface, included is another poke at the
thermal zone for comparison.

This problem is still present, but at the moment, I shut down the
sensors-applet on the gnome panel, so that it no longer makes
gnome-panel stall.

$ time cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp
