Default Fanspeed at 100% at mininal load

Sorry for the long silence. It looks like after the fix to
Bug#603981, this is hardcoded again.

Meanwhile, upstream there was v2.6.38-rc1~405^2~3 (powerpc/powermac:
Make auto-loading of therm_pm72 possible, 2010-12-05), which
unfortunately only affects therm_pm72 and not the windfarm_* modules.

Erik, any news? Is the current hack good enough? Do you know if
anyone has contacted upstream about this?

Thanks,
Jonathan

Thanks. I'm merging this with the closed bug #603981, since even
though there is still potential for improvement (the world is a better
place with autoloading, instead of every initramfs hardcoding the same
thing), it is nicely documented in the initramfs-tools source and I am
not sure if anyone cares about it.

In other words, I'm marking this closed, but please feel free to fix it
anyway.

Regards,
Jonathan
