Hi, sorry for the late response.

Sorry, I'm still not quite clear about how this will be used.
Say, processor has P0~P3, then we need to register a thermal zone with
three STATE_ACTIVE trip points, like the picture shown below?

processor in full speed, i.e. P0
----------------------------
state active trip point 1
----------------------------
processor in P1
----------------------------
state active trip point 2
----------------------------
processor in P2
----------------------------
state active trip point 3
----------------------------
processor in P3

It seems that we can convert the ACPI processor thermal driver to follow
this generic cpu cooling implementation, right?

thanks,
