Hi Greg,

Thank you for looking at this.

Yes, I observed the complexity.

But, we cannot put all _trip directly under ZoneX directory. We can remove the
thermal_trip directory, and put sensorY_trip under /sys/class/thermal/zoneX/.
But this sensorY_trip needs to be a directory which has four sysfs nodes named,
active, passive, crit, hot.

Rui, What do you think about this ?

The only other way I see, is directly put sensorY_trip_[active/passive/hot/crit]
which will create way too many nodes, under /sys/class/thermal/zoneX/.
