Yes.

Indeed it is not really reliable. For me it jumps up by 10° between first
reading within the next second (and seems to stay at this offset after first use).

But yes, I think it should be possible to use it similar to omap5-core-thermal.dtsi

Maybe we have to add "trips" and "core_crit". This must obviously be linked to
the cpufreq system. Or is it done automatically?

BR,
Nikolaus
