I have the same issue.

To me it looks like this:

Probing for the second fan calls fan2_get_speed(), this calls
fan_select_fan2() which in turn checks that tp_features.second_fan is set.
But at this point in the tp_features.second_fan can not yet be set because it
is either set from quirks or *after* the probing.

Maybe some of the matches for the quirk TPACPI_FAN_2FAN should also have
matched this device?
It doesn't do so on my device.
