I have no idea who or what supplied eeepc-fan-control.sh. It certainly wasn't the kernel itself.

Would you mind uploading it here?

Sure. It's part of the Eee PC ACPI scripts
http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=49081
which installs /etc/acpi/eeepc/eeepc-fan-control.sh

BTW I'm running one of the original Asus Eee PC 701s

That script is not going to work on a stock kernel as /proc/eee simply won't exist (that's a Xandros kernel invention). The 2.6.28 kernel I have here does fan control through /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon1/ controls. Does the Ubuntu EeePC Kernel still use the eee module?
