I want to give my 2 cents of feedback to this issue posted in
[arch-dev-public] [signoff] kernel26 :

(I had the impression that it might be heating up my laptop more than
normal, but then I was doing backups last night, and I'm feeling a part of
my laptop that I'm not sure if it's normally warm anyway. Is there a way to
measure this? The estimated battery life from GNOME looks pretty normal, if
that's an indication of heating by way of power-usage.)

 I do think you have a valid point on the heat issue. The fans on my laptop
are notably louder with 2.6.35. Not by a bunch, but from quiet to a low
"ssshhhhsshhhsshhh" that you cannot mistake. But given it runs great, it is
a big step forward from my 2.6.34 woes...

I'm having fan noise issue since latest kernel update. While system does run
smooth, there's a notable increment of noise from the fan that seems to be
running a little faster. On the other hand the videocard cooler seems to run
as silent as ever.
