OK.

Yes, it might increase the suspend/resume time, a 'queue_work_on' might be better?

Yes,

Here's my original thought: tstate_suspend needs to be invoked after
thermal_pm_notify, which has a priority of '0',
so the notifier of tstate_suspend should be lower than '0',
thus '-1'. And the same for tstate_resume,
it should be invoked before thermal_pm_notify,
thus priority is '1' ?
