This won't fly I'm afraid, the number of hwmon drivers affected will
grow in the future and you certainly don't want to have to change the
generic thermal code every time a new driver is added/converted.
I've looked at the problem this morning and I will admit I do not even
understand what the problem is. In Randy's config, CONFIG_THERMAL_OF=y
so both thermal_zone_of_sensor_unregister and
thermal_zone_of_sensor_register are built-in. SENSORS_LM75=y so the
calls to these functions are built-in too. I just can't see how this
can be a problem at link time. Can anyone enlighten me?
