The storage device is merely acting as a temperature sensor.
This info, jointly with other temperature sensors of the system,
Should be used elsewhere in a much broader scope - probably by Android.
Either way, ufshcd is hardly the place for those decisions.

I agree, and this is why I wanted to allow that that flexibility.
But I get Bart's point. I will register the sensor in some subsystem.
It should allow the required degrees of freedom.
