Thanks for the detailed review of the patch. Actually i tried to merge
the benefits of trip type ACTIVE and PASSIVE into one so this name.
This new trip type is just like ACTIVE but instead of OFF(0)/ON(1)
all values greater then 0 is on. Anyways I looked at your
implementation below but this will not solve the purpose as
thermal_cooling_device_register() need to be be called only once to
register a cooling device such cpu frequency based. However the same
cooling device may be binded many times to different trips.
Say,
1) thermal_zone_bind_cooling_device(tz_dev, 0, cdev);
2) thermal_zone_bind_cooling_device(tz_dev, 1, cdev);
3) thermal_zone_bind_cooling_device(tz_dev, 2, cdev);

0,1, 2 are nothing but trip points so the set_cur_state should be called like
set_cur_state(cdev, 0)
set_cur_state(cdev, 1)
set_cur_state(cdev, 2) when the trip point threshold are crossed.

Yeah I agree that implementation logic looks complex but this to
prevent the lower temp trip points cooling handlers to be called. I
will surely make this better in next version.
