We should not involve any platform specific stuff in this documentation.
how about "Attribute is only present for zones in which the passive
cooling policy is not supported by native thermal driver"

For an ACPI thermal zone, supporting passive cooling means that both
_PSL and _PSV are available.
so I don't think we need to change this. :)
