target and threshold have an air of finality to them and doesn't lend
itself to having a few trip points on the way to the critical trip,
IMO.

Let me know if you feel otherwise.

I will squash both the DT changes in to a single change introducing 2
passive trips and 1 critical trip to avoid the churn. See if you like
it better.

Agreed. Will remove.

Just some basic testing by pinning a dhrystone benchmark to each of
the cores along with some stress-ng threads. Lopping off the top 4
OPPs seemed to mitigate anything I could throw at the board.

I'm unable to do the "device in a closed car on a hot summer day" type
of tests on the dev board. Nevertheless, I've changed the patch now to
only remove the boost frequency at 75 degrees and then full throttling
at 95 degrees.

I'd appreciate more "real world" testing to validate these.

Thanks for the review.

Regards,
Amit
