Yes we need those checks in thermal drivers. However, proper checks are
already in place - please look into imx_thermal.c case.

There is always a trade off. What I've shown in v2 is that I'm pretty
confident that my fix won't introduce any regression for present code.

Unfortunately several checks are already in place (imx_thermal.c,
db8500_cpufreq.c, ti-soc*.c, in some way the old Exynos thermal driver).

There is a call to cpufreq_cooling_register(), which sometimes happens
in the late part of probe function. In such a case it would be quite
challenging to release already allocated resources (e.g. ti, old
Exynos driver).

It would be beneficial to hear Viresh's opinion.

In short: The goal of this patch is to show that regressions should not
happen and that it can be safely applied for v3.19.
