Hi Zhang,

thanks for taking the time to review

Yes, that is correct.

There is the initial proposal to add/del trip points via sysfs which is
not merged because of no comments and the presentation from Srinivas
giving the 'add' and 'del' notification description, so I assumed the
feature would be added soon.

These functions are here ready to be connected to the core code. If
anyone is planning to implement add/del trip point, he won't have to
implement these two notifications as they will be ready to be called.

Sure, I can add:

int thermal_notify_cdev_change(...)

Sure.

You are right, there is no min state for a cooling device, only for the
instances in the thermal zones. I will fix that.

Actually the userspace still need a 'get temp' or 'get trip' commands.

get temp : Get the temperature at any time, like reading the sysfs
temperature

get trip : Get the trip point information when a trip event happens, no
need to get a full discovery of the thermal zones before.

If I send a bulk message containing all the thermal zones, their trips
point, the governors and the cooling devices, that will force the
userspace to deal with multiple level of nested arrays. With netlinks
that makes the code really more complicated and prone to errors.

With this approach, if the userspace is interested only on "gpu", it can
get the thermal zone id when getting all the thermal zones <id, name>
and then ask for the information it is interested in.

Well I thought that is be more flexible.
