just rediff it against latest git and send an email to Len Brown (i
assume, from looking at git log drivers/thermal/ output) requesting for
driver inclusion.

Len?

If you hurry and do it this week it might be possible to get it in .31
because the merge window opens around the coming weekend.

Ah, nevermind. I got mixed up here, sorry.

My reasoning was that because this is called from sysfs and the user
sees nothing happening even if he'd turned off the fan by calling
.set_cur_state that it might be useful to tell him why.
