Hello,

It would be great if status of fan (on/off) could be
also used as a parameter to choose specific rule. At ts
moment it seems to be impossible (?)

There is additional issue - on my laptop part of acpi
is broken, and the status of the fan is always reported
as "off". I have noticed that the fan turns on at 60 C
and stops when the temperature decreases to 50 C. I
have written some bash script that writes status of the
fan to some file (/tmp/fan_status). All I need is to
get cpufreqd plugin that will be able to read this file
(maybe some config parameter here?) and, when fan is
on, decrease the speed of CPU (in order to enable
faster decrease of temperature)

Best regards !
