Just more input at here. I agree currently Hi3660 thermal driver
is quite similiar with Hi6220, before we wrote a dedicated Hi3660
thermal driver due we used mailbox method rather than shared
memory mode.

If we merge two thermal drivers, this means Hi3660 register layout
should be adjusted as same with Hi6220; I am not sure if this is
feasible and need Kevin to confirm for this.

And does this mean we need provide interrupt mode for Hi3660? Or
we can extend the driver to only support pollig mode?

[...]

Thanks,
Leo Yan
