That does not answer my question. That you can not decide which
fan to use for auto-detection does not mean that the result of
that auto-detection would be different for different fans.

Yes, but just because you introduced an array for various variables,
and you still have the unnecessary check for other callers.

If you want to return -EINVAL for bad ioctl parameters, add a range
check check there. But that would be a separate patch.
