IIUC a value of 0 is pointless, the thermal framework will still use
an estimated value:

As commented on v1 (https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10926519/#22620905)
the value of the property may depend on the thermal characteristics of
the device, there is not one correct value per SoC/core. If it is
specified at SoC level device makers should be aware that they might
have to override it for 'optimal' behavior on their device.
