Not all thermal drivers support trip points. So, we first need a
if (tz->ops->get_trip_temp) check here.

Another way would be to use the get_trend APIs for this thermal zone.
If the trend is cooling we can re-enable boost otherwise not.

Overall, I believe this will work well only if the thermal zone is CPU.

Another suggestion is: We tried hard to remove all throttling logic from
thermal_core.c. May be we should include this kind of logic in
step_wise.c ? Rui/Eduardo: Any thoughts on this ?

Thanks,
