The newly added scpi thermal support is broken when the scpi driver
is built-in but the thermal driver is a loadable module:

This uses the same Kconfig trick that we have in a couple of other
drivers already to ensure we can only select the driver in valid
configurations when either THERMAL_OF is disabled, or when with a
dependency on CONFIG_THERMAL that can force SCPI to be a loadable
module in the case I was hitting.
