Understood.

So I presume the problem is that if this is called from probe, you might
of_pd_warming_register(), which ends up in
__thermal_cooling_device_register() before thermal_init() has been
invoked?

Which is bad because e.g. thermal_class is not yet initialized.


I don't want to rely on the order of initcalls for things to work, so
could we make this more robust by having
thermal_of_cooling_device_register() return -EPROBE_DEFER is
thermal_init() isn't done?
