Subject: [PATCH 3/7] thermal: gov_power_allocator: Check the cooling devices only for trip_max

The throttling logic takes care only for the last passive trip point and
attached cooling devices to it. Therefore, there is no need to bail out if
other trip points have a cooling device which is not a supported by IPA.

Check the cooling devices only for the 'trip_max' during the binding.
