Reducing the number of thermal zones to 2 (by grouping 4 sensors per
zone) is not possible due a limitation of the thermal framework[1]. It
is something that we want to address. Previous attempts to fix this
were rejected for various reasons. Eduardo was going to share a way to
have more flexible mapping between sensors and zones after discussions
at LPC.

<nag> Eduardo, do you have anything we can review? </nag> :-)

Having said that, we'll need some aggregation functions when we add
multiple sensors to a zone (e.g. max, mean) to reflect the zone. This
will lose information about hotspots and prevent things like idle
injection on a particular CPU that is causing most of the heat in the
aggregated zone. So IMHO, it might be useful to have information about
the hotspots (i.e TZ per sensor) and aggregated values (ambient
temperature) that can be fed to the thermal policy.
