I overlooked the last line of the patch. So thermal_zone_device_update() returns
immediately if the thermal zone is disabled, right?

But how can we stop polling in this case?
There is no chance to call into monitor_thermal_zone() in thermal_zone_device_update(),
or do I miss something?

I have finished a small patch set to improve this based on my understanding, and will post it
tomorrow after testing.
