I run on a Toshiba Satellite M100. With this omnibook
module I can now read the cpu temperature (thanks) and
I realized the fan is triggered at around 46C. It
switches between on/off all the time. Unfortunately
there is no support yet for the fan_policy for this
model (ectype=12). This would be appreciated.

I updated the Pheonix bios to the most recent version
but nothing has improved.

Follows the info, and I attached the dsdt.

    Hello,
    I am not currently working on that as I have no hardware
    specs for
    Fan control. I don't even know if it's implementable as:
    - there is no fan device in the ACPI table
    - the Windows Toshiba tools don't have this feature
    - I have no hardware specs for that

    Thanks.

    I Think that considering the availability of:
    - Cooling method control in latest release
    - Fan monitoring in experimental branch
    The best possible support for fan device and ectype 12 is provided
    Hence I'm closing this support request
