You are correct. I forgot to change this when I did my copy-paste.

I read through the documentation, but it wasn't completely clear to
me. AFAICT, the numbers after &cpu represent the min and max index in
the OPP table when the condition is hit.

The OPP's for OMAP3530 show that OPP5 and OPP6 are capable of
operating at 105C. AM3517 is a little different also, so I didn't
want to make a generic omap3 throttling table. Since my goal was to
try to remove the need for the turbo option from the newly supported
1GHz omap3630/3730, I was hoping to get this pushed first. From
there, we can tweak the 34xx.dtsi and 3517.dtsi for their respective
thermal information.

I have access to a thermal chamber at work, but the guy who knows how
to use it is out for the rest of the week. My plan was do as you
suggested and change the milicelsius values, but I wanted to get some
buy-in from TI people and/or Tony. This also means enabling the omap3
thermal stuff which clearly throws a message that it's inaccurate. I
don't know how much it's inaccurate, so we may have to make the 90C
value lower to compensate.
