IMO it does not make sense to expose the hardware throttling mechanism
as a cooling device because it is not usable anywhere from the thermal

Moreover, that will collide with the thermal / cpufreq framework
mitigation (hardware sets the frequency but the software thinks the freq
is different), right ?

The hardware limiter should let know the cpufreq framework about the
frequency change.

May be post the sensor without the hw limiter for now and address that
in a separate series ?
