We use cdev for the cooling device everywhere in the kernel, so please
do s/cooldev/cdev/ in your patches.

I also had the same comments when I looked at your patch :)

I also think we must do the unregistering before calling stop_cpu()
callback.

Since the core doesn't refer to this field at all and uses it only
while registering/unregistering as a cooling device, there is no
technical issue that we will have today. If someone uses the dangling
pointer later on in future, it will be a bug. So I wouldn't care much
about resetting it here.

Add a full-stop here please.
