Subject[PATCH 00/11] thermal: add new flag irq-mode for trip point
Date
Hi all,

This patch set adds new flag and mechanism in thermal trip point in DT.
The current situation with 'passive' (passive cooling - DVFS)
trip point is that it enables polling mode in thermal framework.
If the device supports irqs fired when the desired temerature is met,
thermal framwork should be notifed from driver's irq routine.
This is sufficent and there is no need of polling.
As a workaround, people declare trip point as 'active'
(active cooling, i.e. fan) to bypass polling mode setup in thermal
framework.

With this patch set trip point 'passive' declared in DT with explicit flag:
'irq-mode;' will not register itself as polling mode.

A good example is Exynos4 SoC family, where there is 4 HW supported
trip points and there is a need of 6. The rest 2 are declared as 'passive'
without 'irq-mode;' flag, thus polling needed.

It does not break existing design for trip points which do not have 'irq-mode'
flag - they will use polling.

For consistency this flag should be added to all trip point types('active',
'passive', 'hot', 'critical') when need (meaning, when irq will notify thermal
framework).
