Looks good, but we'll also need a solution for the existing devicetree
nodes since they are being used. The best solution would probably
be to document and add "nxp,lm75a" to the list of devicetree nodes.
The same applies to other used but not documented compatible strings
(I think you sent a list earlier if I recall correctly).

Sorry that I didn't bring this up earlier, but I am concerned that
if we don't do this, this patch might be considered a regression.

Thanks,
Guenter
