[opensuse-factory] Requested backport patch from kernel 4.6 to 4.4 upstream addressing unnecessary throttling of cpus on Lenovo laptops
Hi all,

I've submitted a backport from 4.6 to 4.4 upstream on kernel.bugzilla.org
for openSUSE 42.2's kernel 4.4.

This patch fixes a bogus passive trip point that is 0 degree Celsius.
The thermal zone fails to set cooling devices to their proper
cooling states.

The processors are always throttled on Lenovo laptops because the
current temperature is always higher than the passive trip point 0
degrees C.

Lenovo laptop users have been complaining about fans running for a
long time for no reason.

I thought that this was a reasonable request.

See: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=118891

Cheers!

Roman
