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?

To me looks like MFD becomes sowhat obsolete with DT.

Besides, to what I could see from past iterations, MFD with DT seams to
be a controvertial subject. That is, we have people that agree to have
it, and people that are not fan of it.
