No heat issues on my own: xsensors reports temps that are always below

I reported the issue to
(, but
unfortunately I didn't got any answer since then.

However, reports the same issue,
with exactly the same symptoms as mine: computer freezes within an
hour or so of uptime, and the last kernel version which didn't cause

Matt Leach (the author of this report) also notified the kernel guys
and did a bisect: see the comments, and in particular

Ok, but where can I find the git repositories of the linux-libre
