One question: do you really want the thermal driver to be loaded as a
module ? Don't you want to have it operational as soon as possible
instead of waiting the OS to boot and load the kernel module?

If a module format is not needed, then the thermal_zone field won't be
needed anymore because the 'remove' ops can be removed and the need of
the tz field to unregister it disappears.
