I really wish a better description of what is going on. I am not really
sure why thermal subsystem must deal with the case of a failing kernel
API. If orderly power off is failing, why don't we fix it instead?
What are the failing conditions? few rare conditions seams very odd.
How does it fail? Why fixing it in thermal? Other users of it don't
deserver the same fix?
