Something that needs to be cleared up here: thermald has existed for the
better part of a decade and long before dptfxtract existed. dptfxtract
exists to handle certain platforms that use DPTF Active. thermald supports
many, many more platforms than that without the need for any closed-source
tools. Additionally, with code that is queued in a thermald branch, we may
not need dptfxtract for any use cases soon.
