Then I'd prefer we only introduce the events that are used or will be
used soon, like the tz disable/enable, to avoid some potential dead
code.
We can easily add more events when they are needed.

Srinivas, do you have plan to use the trip add/delete events?

thermal_notify_cdev_change() and thermal_notify_cdev_update() looks
confusing to me.
Can we use thermal_notify_cdev_update_cur() and
thermal_notify_cdev_update_max()?
Or can we use one event, with updated cur_state and max_state?

Then I'm totally okay with this implementation. Thanks for the
explanation.
