For the thermal-sensor cells, if you meant the argument of tsens phandle, then
the reason is that argument is for sensor index starting from 0, previous I use
it for our resource ID, but it looks confused, since user will think there are many
sensors there per Eduardo's comment.

+ thermal-sensors = <&tsens 0>;

If you meant putting it in each thermal sensor node instead of "tsens" node, then
in previous patch series, I put this " imx,sensor-resource-id " property in each thermal
sensor node, but the thermal sensor nodes are parsed by common thermal framework,
thermal driver will need to find the thermal zone node and go through every child node
to get the resource id again, so Eduardo suggested to put it in our platform tsens node, that makes
our thermal driver code much more simple.

Thanks,
Anson.
