Hello Stephen,

Thanks for the patch

Use platform_get_irq_optional() to avoid a noisy error message when the
irq isn't specified. The irq is definitely optional given that we only
care about errors that are -EPROBE_DEFER here.

- data->throttle_irq = platform_get_irq(pdev, index);
- if (data->throttle_irq <= 0)
- return data->throttle_irq == -EPROBE_DEFER ? -EPROBE_DEFER : 0;

Here the idea is to return only -EPROBE_DEFER error. Else return a 0 ,
so that cpufreq is enabled even if lmh interrupt is inaccessible. The
above check returns errors other than -EPROBE_DEFER as well. So I would
say make irq optional and keep the below check

if (data->throttle_irq <= 0)
return data->throttle_irq == -EPROBE_DEFER ? -EPROBE_DEFER : 0;

I'd like to catch other errors, for example, DT has an irq specified
that is outside the range of irqs available. If the DT is correct, then
it will either have a valid irq and this will return a >= 0 value or
nothing will be specified and we'll get back -ENXIO now. Do you have
some scenario where my patch fails to work?

Exactly. Like in the scenario you mentioned above, I do not want cpufreq to be disabled. This interrupt is a throttle notification interrupt. The action taken on basis of this is to send thermal pressure signal to scheduler so that scheduler places tasks better. Even if the dt has messed up this interrupt, I think cpufreq should still be enabled. May be we can print a warn and still return 0 to enable cpufreq.
