Subject: Re: [PATCH 0/3] drm/gk20a: support for reclocking

Does GK20A itself have any kind of thermal protection capabilities? 
Upstream SOCTHERM support is not yet available (though I have a driver 
in my tree), so we are thinking of disabling CPU DVFS on boards that 
don't have always-on active cooling for now. Same might be necessary for 
GPU as well.
