I have not read the link, so maybe there is something else there, but as
far as fan control:

RabbitsDen# sysctl dev.acpi_ibm.0.fan=0
dev.acpi_ibm.0.fan: 1 -> 0
RabbitsDen# sysctl dev.acpi_ibm.0.fan_level=7
dev.acpi_ibm.0.fan_level: 1 -> 7
RabbitsDen# sysctl dev.acpi_ibm.0.fan_speed
dev.acpi_ibm.0.fan_speed: 4080
RabbitsDen# sysctl dev.acpi_ibm.0.fan_level=3
dev.acpi_ibm.0.fan_level: 7 -> 3

RabbitsDen# sysctl dev.acpi_ibm.0.fan_speed
dev.acpi_ibm.0.fan_speed: 3310

RabbitsDen# kldstat | grep ibm
5 1 0xc08ac000 4f74 acpi_ibm.ko

System is: FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT #0: Sun Sep 30 11:54:51 EDT 2007

Hardware is: ThinkPad X60 (one of the first ones, with 32-bit dualcore
CPU) -- sorry do not want to pry it from the dock -- if specific model
is important, let me know and I will look.
