    ACPI: thermal: create "thermal.off=1" to disable ACPI thermal support
    
    "thermal.off=1" disables all ACPI thermal support at boot time.
    
    CONFIG_ACPI_THERMAL=n can do this at build time.
    "# rmmod thermal" can do this at run time,
    as long as thermal is built as a module.
    
    WARNING: On some systems, disabling ACPI thermal support
    will cause the system to run hotter and reduce the
    lifetime of the hardware.
