I think the problem comes from the fact there are no governors capable
of handling multiple thermal zones.

The additional cooling device is the devfreq but as the mali driver is
not upstream, the cooling map for this device does not appear. We can
find the definitions and the driver in the AOSP [1].

Moreover, the power is usually managed by the IPA governor, but this one
can not handle multiple thermal zones, so the cooling devices are joined
together into a single thermal zone with their contribution to the
cooling effect.

Other definitions I have seen upstream are incomplete or broken.
