I see. If I got correctly, with the above patch, we still need to have
the check for cpufreq driver in the thermal driver right?
quoting:
"In thermal driver probe the cpufreq_cooling_register() method presence
is crucial to evaluate if the thermal driver needs any actions with
-EPROBE_DEFER."

If yes, that means the proposal still leaves to drivers to deal with
the sequencing. For the patch above, I believe it is fine. However, a
better sequencing is still needed :-(.

For the case of of-thermal based drivers, it should be dealt between
cpu_cooling and cpufreq, as I proposed, bellow. I really agree that
drivers should not care about this, and thus we should not spread the
check among drivers, specially if there is nothing regarding cpufreq in
the driver's code. I might send the proposal of having the check between
cpu_cooling and cpufreq as a formal patch, in a separated thread.

I will have a look in your v2. Briefly looking, looks reasonable.


Once again, thanks.

Cheers,

Eduardo Valentin
