Description: Thermal Daemon is a Linux daemon for monitoring and controlling platform temperatures. Once the system temperature reaches a certain threshold, the Linux daemon activates various cooling methods to try to cool the system. 

More details can be obtained from:
https://01.org/linux-thermal-daemon/documentation/introduction-thermal-daemon
http://www.linux.com/news/featured-blogs/200-libby-clark/721494-linux-thermal-daemon-monitors-and-controls-temperature-in-tablets-laptops
http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTM2OTk

It operates in two modes:
Daemon acts to cool the system under the following two modes :
1. Zero Configuration Mode
2. User defined configuration mode

1. Zero Configuration Mode
For most users, this should be enough to bring the CPU temperature of the system under control. This uses DTS temperature sensor and uses Intel P state driver,
Power clamp driver, Running Average Power Limit control and cpufreq as cooling methods.
2. User defined configuration mode
This allows ACPI style configuration in a thermal XML configuration file. This can be used to fix the buggy ACPI configuration or fine tune by adding more sensors and cooling devices.
This is a first step in implementing a close loop thermal control in user mode and can be enhanced based on community feedback and suggestions.

This is my first package and seeking a sponsorship.
