Agree.

Another thought of suspend/resume case is in mobile world, most of the
thermal zone sensors are interrupt capable and the linked cooling
devices are platform cooling devices whose states won't be affected
during suspend. So resetting each thermal zone during suspend/resume
just wasted cycles/power on mobile due to re-setting trip threshold
again and again and also delays in device resume. I am proposing that
we have a flag in device tree per thermal zone to let thermal core not
reset during suspend/resume.

+1 noop sounds good. Do you have plan to change it?
