Actually, this warning is introduced with the driver and all the
plumbers around to fix an irq bouncing. There is no patch to revert
without removing the driver.

What the log in the series does not tell is the driver was initially
built around a supposed issue with the thermal sensor, that is multiple
interrupts firing for the same event.

Those happen when a specific threshold is reached (down to up and up to
down) and a hysteresis should have been specified in the register in
order to prevent multiple interrupts firing when the limit is crossed.

All the code in the driver was built to overcome this issue because the
root cause was not spotted: the hysteresis register was not correctly
set and it was reset at every update. The driver 'workarounded' that by
creating some kind of irq enabled flag, a sensor reset every time it was
read and other hacks to make it work (it results in a worst temperature
measurement accuracy also because the temperature buffer on the chip is
flushed).

These 5 patches not only fixes the irq issue but also sanitize the
driver. There is no longer a reset of the sensor, no irq bouncing and no
5ms delay when the sensor is read.
