OK, I will add the cooling map. But the tzts1 ~ tzts6 don't need to binding cooler.
The "cpu_thermal" is max value of tzts1 ~tzts6. And cpu_thermal bind
cooler with IPA. tzts1~6 don't need to add cooler. So, do I just add
cooling map without any binding any cooling-cell?

I think thermal framework will add estimated sustainable power. Maybe I
should add by myself. What's procedure do you recommend to find
sustainable power?
