+a) TMU configuration data: This consist of TMU register offsets/bitfields
+ described through structure exynos_tmu_registers. Also several
+ other platform data (struct exynos_tmu_platform_data) members
+ are used to configure the TMU.
+b) TMU driver: This component initialises the TMU controller and sets different
+ thresholds. It invokes core thermal implementation with the call
+ exynos_report_trigger.
+c) Exynos Core thermal wrapper: This provides 3 wrapper function to use the
+ Kernel core thermal framework. They are exynos_unregister_thermal,
+ exynos_register_thermal and exynos_report_trigger.
