One important thing to note in my patch description is "some of which
are already in use.".

$ git grep renesas,thermal -- arch/arm/boot/ | cat
arch/arm/boot/dts/r8a7790.dtsi: compatible =
"renesas,thermal-r8a7790", "renesas,rcar-thermal";
arch/arm/boot/dts/r8a7791.dtsi: compatible =
"renesas,thermal-r8a7791", "renesas,rcar-thermal";
$

So these 2 should be added to the documentation for sure.
Adding the 2 others, and adding them to the respective DTSes (cfr. the
other patches in the series) doesn't hurt, and will help if an incompatibility
ever arises.

(I assume the driver works with the other DTSes that already claim to have
a device compatible with "renesas,rcar-thermal").
