Could you give an example how the notification would be delivered
further to the upper layers, like hwmon driver, cpufreq or thermal?
For example, for sensor protocol which delivers event
SENSOR_TRIP_POINT_EVENT indicating a trip point was crossed.

Would it be possible for:
drivers/hwmon/scmi-hwmon.c
to get this temperature events like an interrupt?

I couldn't find it in the implementation of the registered handlers.

Lukasz
