<sigh>, then what message is shown, what _exactly_ is the problem? Perhaps it
would help if instead of communicating with your testers in private, you would
CC the list on your communications. It would be very handy to be able to read
the problem as described  by the end users / testers. Also do these machines
have BIOS readings for their sensors? What is the exact dmesg output when
loading the driver, etc, etc. We need more details.
