There are some mfd devices which supports junction thermal interrupt
like ams,AS3722. The DT binding of these devices are defined as the
flat and drivers for sub module of such devices are registered as
the mfd_add_devices. In this method, the sub devices registered as
platform driver and these do not have the of_node pointer on their
device structure. In this case, use the parent of_node pointer to
get the required of_node pointer.

Can you please elaborate a bit more on your proposal? So, you would
append the thermal zones on the DT node of the MFD device?

Yes, mfd node for ams,as3722 is flat node, almost all sub-module driver have their property on this node only. Regulator have their own sub node under this node.

as3722 {
compatible = "ams,as3722";
#gpio-cells = <2>;
regulator {

So in this, the thermal sensor driver's property is on the as3722 node only and thermal zone need to refer this node for sensor.

However, as3722 thermal sensor driver is register as sub mfd devices through mfd_add_devices() and thermal sensor drivers pdev->dev.of_node does not have any valid pointer.
