Not against the change as this is in a very slow path. But the trip is
not an arbitrary value which user can enter.

This trip value is the one of the sysfs attribute in thermal zone. For
example

# cd /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone1
# ls trip_point_?_temp
trip_point_0_temp  trip_point_1_temp  trip_point_2_temp  trip_point_3_t
emp  trip_point_4_temp  trip_point_5_temp  trip_point_6_temp

Here the "trip" is one of the above trip_point_*_temp. So in this case
it can be from 0 to 6 as user can't do
# cat trip_point_7_temp
as there is no sysfs attribute for trip_point_7_temp.

The actual "trip" was obtained in thermal core via

      if (sscanf(attr->attr.name, "trip_point_%d_temp", &trip) != 1)
                return -EINVAL;

Thanks,
Srinivas
