Arnd & Heiko & Eduardo,

OK. Maybe you are right.

This driver should be put into drivers/iio/adc/* ,
Anyway,I will re-edit it ASAP.

On the driver side, I believe the correct way to deal with this setup
is to split your driver into a generic drivers/iio/adc/rockchips-tsadc.c
file, and a smaller thermal driver that uses the iio in-kernel interfaces,
ideally one that is independent of the underlying hardware and can
work on any ADC implementation.
Agreed. If you can write such interface and make your driver to work in
such way, that would be great.
But I currently don't see how you would model the temperature handling parts
from a generic thermal driver to a generic adc driver for the rk3288-tsadc.

I guess the general temperature irq handling would use iio-triggers? But how
does the target temperature get into the TSADC_COMP1_INT register.

Also when getting the temperature, Caesar's driver compares it to its trip
points and sets the next trip point depending on the current temperature
(passive <-> critical) in rockchip_get_temp.

Maybe there is some completely easy way for this, but currently I don't see
Eduardo earlier today replied to an email about a generic driver for
thermal, which was posted in February but hasn't been merged.

There may be a newer version of this patch, which I haven't found.
