Subject[PATCHv5 0/1] Intel Quark X1000 DTS thermal driver
Dear maintainers & communities,

This patch introduces DTS thermal driver for Intel Quark X1000.
The code implementation is based on intel_soc_dts_thermal.c.

Intel Quark X1000 has one on-die DTS with two configurable trip points:
critical and hot trip points. However, todate, UEFI BIOS for Quark X1000
uses only critical trip point. UEFI BIOS always lock DTS register before
hand-over to Linux kernel.

The minimalist thermal design is meant to trigger Linux distro to gracefully
power-down the system when its DTS temperature exceeds the configured critical
trip point.

In anticipation that other variant of Quark platform may come with UEFI BIOS
that does not lock DTS register during hand-over, this DTS driver is built
with logics to handle such case too.

I have tested v4 of the patch on Intel Galileo Gen v2 board and found it
satisfactory with logs below:
