+- Reinit without restart thermald to load new parameters like new control temperature
+- Fix indexes when Linux thermal sysfs doesn't have contiguous zone numbering
+- Support for new Intel SoC platforms
+- Introduce back-light control as the Linux back light cooling device is removed

+- Virtual Sensor definition
+- Fix loop when uevents floods the system
+- Error message removal for rapl sysfs traversal
+- Coverity error

Reproducible: Always
