9	-----------
10	
11	Exynos 4x12 (4212, 4412) and 5 series provide emulation mode for thermal management unit.
12	Thermal emulation mode supports software debug for TMU's operation. User can set temperature
13	manually with software code and TMU will read current temperature from user value not from
14	sensor's value.
15	
16	Enabling CONFIG_THERMAL_EMULATION option will make this support available.
17	When it's enabled, sysfs node will be created as
18	/sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone'zone id'/emul_temp.
19	
20	The sysfs node, 'emul_node', will contain value 0 for the initial state. When you input any
21	temperature you want to update to sysfs node, it automatically enable emulation mode and
22	current temperature will be changed into it.
23	(Exynos also supports user changeable delay time which would be used to delay of
24	 changing temperature. However, this node only uses same delay of real sensing time, 938us.)
25	
26	Exynos emulation mode requires synchronous of value changing and enabling. It means when you
27	want to update the any value of delay or next temperature, then you have to enable emulation
28	mode at the same time. (Or you have to keep the mode enabling.) If you don't, it fails to
29	change the value to updated one and just use last succeessful value repeatedly. That's why
30	this node gives users the right to change termerpature only. Just one interface makes it more
31	simply to use.
32	
33	Disabling emulation mode only requires writing value 0 to sysfs node.
