| running too fast.  But in reality, there has got to be some maximum
| physical RPM limit associated with the fan.  If they would just use
| that as the upper critical threshold, then you would not need a
| special case for sensor #33.
"Get Sensor Thresholds Command" command has a bit mask indicating
which thresholds are readable. I will make use if this feature (if it
works) to selectively ignore non-readable fields and determine the
state smartly. Then fan sensor need not be handled as a special case.
