I got a response from Benjamin already on this issue, with regards to
windfarm and Dapper Flight 3:

It should indeed work with recent kernels. I got some code in 2.6.15 but
there might still have been unresolved issues. Make sure you load the
windfarm_pm91 module and let us know... If it doesn't work, try an up to
date git snapshot. If still doesn't work, let me know and we'll track
the problem down."

I have been told by some people claiming to be in the know, that the G5
single (PowerMac 9.1) is similar to the iMac internally, just with a G5
exterior, of course. This with which windfarm modules are needed for
which model - is it pinned down? Should I file a separate bug report on
the windfarm_pm91 module and G5 single machines??? Thermal control is
still not working for me with the new Edgy builds.
