SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/7] thermal/drivers/core: Add init section table for self-encapsulation
From
Date
Hi, Daniel,

Thanks for the patches, it looks good to me except this one and patch
4/7.

First, I don't think this is a cyclic dependency issue as they are in
the same module.
Second, I have not read include/asm-generic/vmlinux.lds.h before, it
seems that it is used for architecture specific stuff. Fix a thermal
issue in this way seems overkill to me.

IMO, to make the code clean, we can build the governors as separate
modules just like we do for cpu governors.
This brings to the old commit 80a26a5c22b9("Thermal: build thermal
governors into thermal_sys module"), and that was introduced to fix a
problem when CONFIG_THERMAL is set to 'm'. So I think we can switch
back to the old way as the problem is gone now.

what do you think?

Patch 1,2,5,6,7 applied first.

thanks,
rui
