One thing I don't follow on your proposal is the groundings you need to
'set_trips' whenever temperature changes. Given your intention is to add
support to interrupt driven devices, shouldn't we 'set_trips' just when
we cross the previously set trips range?

As already mentioned by swarren, the proposal must be wider. We shall
keep the same support in case the device is used in a system without
device tree. In other words, if you want to see extra functionality for
interrupt driven devices, you shall update the core part too, and draft
a common messaging path.

In general, interrupt driven devices are not mapped in the current
thermal framework. That is, the current code is timer interrupt driven.
Other interrupt updates from devices are propagated to
the framework using thermal_zone_device_update(). In other words, you would
reprogram your hardware trips from your interrupt handler/workqueue then
just let the framework know what is going on with temperature, via a simple
thermal_zone_device_update().

The way I see this going forward it would be a common interface to
configure the thermal zones to be monitored:
a. via polling only
b. via interrupt only
c. both a + b

obviously, the above shall be informative only for userland.

keep in mind also that changing interrupt configuration for high and low
temperature thresholds can be racy.

This feature was kept in the TODO list of the of-thermal.c because the
we lack a proper support from the thermal framework (never came out of
the TODO list, I know, I apologize for this). And this missing feature
was spotted by the hwmon folks also, as they do have such support. So,
the major missing improvements on interrupt driven devices shall come in
three steps: (i) thermal framework, (ii) of-thermal (iii) thermal
framework and hwmon interface.


Cheers,

Here, if you update trips whenever you get_temp, you are possibly
reprogramming your trips on every poll. Remember, this function will be
called on every poll, in the current implementation.

we need to clean the above arguments. they should become a .ops.
