I have no such example. I just did not see why this couldn't be allowed
(e.g. setting only set_temp_limit and get_temp_alarm looks fine to me).
But if you say that get_temp should be mandatory, I'm OK with that.

The primary goal of this patchset was to use DEVICE_ATTR_RW to declare
temp1_max, instead of reflecting the minimal permissions needed.
