Yeah ... :/

Mmh, I'm not sure it is possible to miss an interrupt with this driver but if
it is the case, there are different scenario.

- The temperature is increasing and reaches the reset value: then the board
- The temperature increases above 65C and then decreases, and increases
again, the interrupt will fire and the driver will work as expected
