SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/8] thermal:cpu cooling:fix: Provide thermal core fixes with deferred probe for several drivers
Lukasz,

Thanks for the keeping this up. And apologize for late answer.

Instead of doing the same check on all drivers in the need for cpu
cooling looks like a promiscuous solution. What if we do this check in
cpu cooling itself and we propagate the error in callers code?

From what I see, only exynos does not propagate the error. And we would
need a tweak in the cpufreq-dt code. Something like the following
(not tested):

The above way, we avoid having same test in every driver that needs it.
Besides, it makes sense the cpu_cooling code takes care of this check,
as it is the very first part that has direct dependency with cpufreq.
