Thermal: Add Hysteresis attributes
The Linux Thermal Framework does not support hysteresis attributes. Most thermal sensors, today, have a hysteresis value associated with trip points. This patch adds hysteresis attributes on a per-trip-point basis, to the Thermal Framework. These attributes are optionally writable.
