in this case, the cooling device should be updated.
Say all the target of the thermal_instances of a cooling devices is 0,
which means they want the cpu to run at maximum frequency, when the max
frequency changes, we should set the processor to the new max frequency
as well.
Using notification is not a good idea as user can not handle this
without interacting with the thermal framework.

IMO, we should introduce a new API to handle this, rather than just
notifications to users.

It is the cooling device driver that notice this change first, and it
should invoke something like thermal_cooling_device_update/rebind() to
tell the thermal framework this change.

yep.
I thought about this before, but I'd prefer to do this when there is a
real user. Or else, we are kind of over-designing here.
how about removing this piece of code for now?

thanks,
