I am not too sure all the values that the bios configures on it's own depending on the provided mode, so I am not sure if thermald conflicts. But my understanding is that would be out of scope of this driver, since we are only telling the bios what we want at a high level.

Yeah it's not say it's a "new" conflict, it would just become a lot more 
prevalent since software like GNOME and KDE use power-profiles-daemon to 
manipulate the new power profile you're exporting from the driver.

If there really is no conflict, then great!
If there is a conflict then I was just wondering if there needs to be an 
easy way to turn on/off the profile support when thermald is in use.
