No, if this delay is 0, the driver will not run polling queue, but just
cancel it.

Eduardo,
Are the trips and cooling-maps required properties ?
I think if miss these sub-nodes, the thermal zone device also can work,
and in the of-thermal framework, it doesn't handle them as required
property either.

Sure.

Thanks.
