Currently, I cannot share these data.

Could you tell more what looks wrong or maybe send a draft/patch?

For me this DT looks like it is copied from ARM Juno board for IPA,
where AFAIR there were no interrupts for the temperature sensor
(due to some psci/scpi/firmware lack of support).
The cooling map is also short. I am not sure if it would work efficient
with step-wise, with IPA it will work.

The DT configuration for Exynos has been working OK for years.
Exynos5433 supports 8 trip points, Exynos5422 has 4.
So if you have more trip points you need to start 'polling'.
Therefore, for Exynos there is no need to run queued work
in thermal framework every 1s or 100ms just to
read the current temperature.
The exynos-tmu driver gets irq and calls thermal framework
when such trip point is crossed. Then there is 'monitoring
window' for the trip point...
Long story short: 'active' is used for that reason.

Lukasz
