Please provide the affected subsystem and the affected driver in the header.
While it may make sense to explain that the patch is to prepare the driver for
thermal use, this should be part of the descriptive text. The patch is,
however, not not a thermal subsystem related patch. The 'thermal:' in the
headline is thus misleading, and you should drop it.
