Have you considered that maybe your CPU was realy over heating and
Linux didn't have much to do with it?
Similiar happened to me recently, post a kernel upgrade. I thought it
was the new kernel, turned out that the CPU was over heating. I
cleaned up the dust and put in a new CPU fan with new thermal gel. Now
I'm running cooler than before.
