Mikko, soctherm doesn't "export thermal zones". I would rewrite your
desription like this:

Extend the Tegra124 device tree by adding the soctherm thermal
sensing and management unit and by defining four thermal zones --
one for each temperature sensor in soctherm.

System integrators have some flexibility in deciding how many thermal
zones to define for their platform. For example, an integrator could
define a single zone for the entire Tegra chip (giving a simple system
at runtime) or with multiple zones (giving potentially higher
performance near thermal limits). That's why I don't like the
implication that soctherm dictates the existence of particular thermal
zones.
