Trip points must be set properly before switching to automatic fan speed

actually switching to automatic control mode.

+Temperature offset attributes
+-----------------------------
+
+The driver supports temp[1-3]_offset sysfs attributes to adjust the reported
+temperature for thermal diodes or diode-connected thermal transistors.
+If a temperature sensor is configured for thermistors, the attribute values
+are ignored. If the thermal sensor type is Intel PECI, the temperature offset
+must be programmed to the critical CPU temperature.
