Hi Eduardo,
The thermal framework handle the critical type trip point in
handle_critical_trips(), it will call orderly_poweroff to shutdown
system gracefully.
"
if (trip_type == THERMAL_TRIP_CRITICAL) {
...
if (!power_off_triggered) {
/*
* Queue a backup emergency shutdown in the event of
* orderly_poweroff failure
*/
thermal_emergency_poweroff();
orderly_poweroff(true);
power_off_triggered = true;
}
"
And in this change, we added a new property to handle hw shutdown for
Tegra. When trigger the hw shutdown trip point, the hw will cut the
power to poweroff directly. If the temperature is raised very quickly,
the hardware can shutdown system before s/w shutdown.

Thanks.
Wei.
