I would compare its voltage to a reference voltage (with some hysteresis) to completely switch down the output voltage.
In order to achieve a fold-back current limiting -- which might be more favorable in terms of thermal power management and application simplification -- one would subtract the current sensor's created voltage over Rs from Vref (as indicated in the image by "or -") -- or add it to Vfb .
