Agree, but the link now requires that "" as invalid _type_.

AFAICT, this is no such API except the private get_device_parent()
under driver/base/. Also the lazy initialization makes sense in such
case when there is no thermal device attached. Looks like the class
dir is also lazy-initialized when first device registered
