Bug description:
  i've just upgraded to 14.10, and i see that linux-image-generic now
  lists thermald as a dependency. is this really a genuine requirement
  now, that without which a computer cannot be used?

  can this be listed as a recommended or suggested dependency instead, so that it is not forced to be installed on computers which have no use for it?
