My apologies, I accidentally sent my response in HTML format. Please 
see plain-text below:

Thinking about it more, we can leave dell-laptop as-is and create a 
common dell-pc module that does not check for specific form-factors, 
assuming that is possible. Thermal management can be the first function 
to go in there.

We will still block the calls from userspace regardless of which 
modules are loaded. If dell-pc fails because thermal management is not 
supported, we aren't losing anything by blocking that call anyway.

Thoughts?
