As suggested by Arnd, you can use the generic driver as interface
between thermal framework and IIO layer. The driver you are going to
write to your ADC is going to be in the IIO subsystem. The only
difference is that the generic driver would work for any ADC driver in
the IIO subsystem.
In fact, there is already a generic driver. We just need to get it up
to date. I see some testing has been already done, and results sound
