I think I found the fan speed interface; I will resubmit to linux-acpi
after I finish it.

Checkpatch complains about static variables initialized to 0. Since
it's my first time writing kernel code, I have to ask what are
probably obvious questions.
1. Why is initializing a static variable to 0 bad? or worse than
initializing that variable to 1, or -1?
2. If I want to have a module parameter whose default value is 0, what
should I do to stop checkpatch from complaining?
