Hrm, no, please, do _NOT_ use the existing PM driver, it will not drive
the fans properly on this machine. There are some differences in the
way the stuffs are setup, some fans will not be driven at all I'm afraid
and we may mix incorrect temperature inputs with fan outputs.

I or somebody else from YDL produce something based on the Darwin source
soon enough.
