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

I've already posted v2 of this patch set (which consists of only one
patch :-) ).

Thanks to Thierry Reding's hint, I've realized that I don't need to add
code from patches 1-6 from v1.

Please instead review following patch:
"thermal:core:fix: Check return code of the ->get_max_state() callback"
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/5326991/
