The Linux Thermal Daemon program from

Thermald deals with thermal issues for intel processor families
codenamed intel sandy-bridge and above. It is a Linux daemon
used to prevent the overheating of systems. This daemon monitors
temperature and applies compensation using available cooling methods.

Prerequisites: intel p-state driver and kernel 3.10+

Prefers kernel with:
Intel RAPL power capping driver : Available from Linux kernel 3.13.rc1
Intel P State driver (Available in Linux kernel stable release)
Intel Power clamp driver (Available in Linux kernel stable release)

CONFIG_X86_MSR, so that x86 MSR can be read/write from user space
to control RAPL if no RAPL powecap class driver is not present.

If none of the above is available uses cpufreq to control P states.
