But, What I feel is, kernel based cooling scheme will work only for
Controlling 'CPU' frequency. But in SoC's there are other devices that
Contribute to Thermal. For example, GPU, Display, Battery (during charging)
etc.. In this case, we need a user space to control these devices. So, in a
way, the user space notification mechanism is a unified solution for
throttling all devices and keeps the kernel code light weight.
I am also curious to know why the existing mechanism did not work for you ?
