And as a consequence, DTS. The already-merged transition from OF to
fwnode resulted in `@xx` to be included in the ADC channel name - and in
the case of ADC5 even in sysfs filenames - so this seems like a
necessary change to make.

At the very least I would have changed the bindings submitted or
co-authored /by myself/ since I initially decided to rely on this (now
obviously) wrong behaviour, and should have used labels from the get go.

Are you suggesting to not use "adc-chan", but "thermistor" as node name
(and still use skin_temp as label)? Or to keep the fully-written-out
"thermistor" word in the label?

As expressed in [1] I suggested and am all for locking this change in
via bindings, and you are right to expect that to have gone paired with
this patch.

I'll submit that as the leading patch to this in v2, with the wildcard
pattern changed to adc-chan (or something else pending the discussion
above), and should I then also require the label property via `label:
