Subject[PATCH] thermal: Constify 'type' argument for the registration routine
thermal_zone_device_register() does not modify 'type' argument, so
it is safe to declare it as const. Otherwise, if we pass a const
string, we are getting the ugly warning:

CC drivers/power/power_supply_core.o
drivers/power/power_supply_core.c: In function 'psy_register_thermal':
drivers/power/power_supply_core.c:204:6: warning: passing argument 1 of ‘thermal_zone_device_register’ discards 'const' qualifier from pointer target type [enabled by default]
include/linux/thermal.h:140:29: note: expected 'char *' but argument is of type 'const char *'
