[PATCH 4/4] drm/amdgpu: extend profiling mode.

Sorry for the late response.

Yes, I set the fan speed to max in this patch when user set high performance.

Considering that: 1. set fan speed to max is helpful to let GPU run under highest clock as long as possible.
	           2. avoid GPU rapid temperature rise in some case.

Best Regards

OK, thanks & Happy new year.
