My HP Compaq NC6000 exhibits slightly different behaviour. For me the
reported temp is always accurate but the trip points get out of sync
with the actual temperature.

With 3.7 I saw two different kinds of problems coming out of resume.
In one case the fan stays on until the temp rises high enough to get the
trip points back into sync. In the other case the fan goes off, and stays
off even when the temperature rises above the highest active trip point,
but it does appear to get back into sync when the temp starts to come back
down. I think the difference might stem from resuming when the laptop has
cooled down fully vs. when it's still warm.

I also just tried 3.9-rc6, and that one appears to behave differently
to 3.7, but still wrong. There the fan goes off after resume, and comes
back on as the temperature rises, but it never slows back down after

I'll try to collect some more detailed dumps of all three cases.
