I see.

In fact, with the current implementation in the thermal framework,
there is nothing else left than coding the feature in the driver
itself. The framework would know only about the existance of the
trips. This approach would need to be cleaned whenever we write the
fix in the core though.

For this reason, I would prefer to clean the core first, then write
the driver as a proof that the changes in core are properly covering
the existing drivers and interrupt driven drivers.

I see. I will be looking into the changes in core. Whenever I have a
working RFC I will share with the list.
