There were patches floating to make this configurable. I was always
a little sceptical of them, but they exist.

But none of the cpufreq governours do this. They only care about
load, not about temperature.

That is what the ACPI driver does when the trip point is reached.

So you're saying processor_thermal should let the system cook
for some time first before really taking action?
