I understand. Apparently the exynos-tmu driver needs some fixes for
this race. Skipping critical then makes sense.

I was asking why you do not let cooling framework decide which cooling
level to use but instead you force a specific cooling level. Maybe code
will be a better example. Why not use:
map0 {
/* Set maximum frequency as 1800MHz */
trip = <&atlas0_alert_0>;
cooling-device = <&cpu4 0 1>;
}
map1 {
/* Set maximum frequency as 1700MHz */
trip = <&atlas0_alert_1>;
cooling-device = <&cpu4 1 2>;
};

For higher frequencies it makes even more sense:
map6 {
/* Set maximum frequency as 800MHz */
trip = <&atlas0_alert_6>;
cooling-device = <&cpu4 7 11>;
};

which allows the system to use suitable cooling level to maintain the
balance between performance and temperature dissipance, instead of some
fixed cooling level which might not be accurate to the system load.

Best regards,
Krzysztof
