SubjectRe: [PATCH] powernv: Add OCC driver to mmap sensor area

Why?

Is this for debug? If so, the existing exports interface should be used.

If there's actual sensors, we already have two ways of exposing sensors
to Linux: the OPAL_SENSOR API and the IMC API.

Why this method and not use the existing ones?
