When I tried to const cdev_name like:
+++ b/include/linux/platform_data/db8500_thermal.h
@@ -27,7 +27,7 @@
struct db8500_trip_point {
unsigned long temp;
enum thermal_trip_type type;
- char cdev_name[COOLING_DEV_MAX][THERMAL_NAME_LENGTH];
+ char const cdev_name[COOLING_DEV_MAX][THERMAL_NAME_LENGTH]; // const char cdev_name[COOLING_DEV_MAX][THERMAL_NAME_LENGTH] will also the same
};

The compiler will also warning:
drivers/thermal/db8500_thermal.c: In function ‘db8500_thermal_match_cdev’:
drivers/thermal/db8500_thermal.c:53:2: warning: passing argument 1 of ‘match_string’ from incompatible pointer type [enabled by default]
i = match_string(trip_point->cdev_name, COOLING_DEV_MAX, cdev->type);

Any idea?

Thanks
