1. Do not enable fan control on thinkpad-acpi, I default it to disabled and
require an explicit module parameter to even alow it for a damn good reason.

In that situation (you remove the module parameter that lets thinkpad-acpi
do fan control, *power off*, and power on again), does the bug still happen?

If it does, the thinkpad is defective, and needs to be repaired.
