Well, I don't know how much it'll help, but I got the Intel DPTF daemon to build under NixOS, and the fan on my new laptop seems to kick on at least occasionally now. Hopefully this'll fix the overheating issue when playing light games on it

For reference, it's an ThinkPad L13 with a 10th-gen i7 in it. I'd really love to get it working happily under Linux, but it refuses to let me control the fan (or even show the fan's RPM in `/proc/acpi/ibm/fan`)

Everything else works fine out of the box on the Linux 5.5 RCs though
