No passive trip point? That is where the cooling-maps are really useful.

I think, what you really want is to change your hot trip point above
to passive. And if you need another trip before that (to send
notification to userspace, for example), just add another hot trip
point at a lower temperature.

The cooling-map associated with a critical trip point is of no use in
my experience because the device is already on its way to shutting
down then.

Same here. The cooling-map makes more sense against a passive trip type.

Agreed. Even the thermal zones belong in the SoC .dtsi. You can always
override the trip-points in a board .dts if required if you have a
board designed in a different form-factor or with active cooling.
