At the beginning, I put the HW resource ID in the "tsens" phandle argument of "thermal-sensors" node,
see  below patch I sent before, the benefit is I do NOT need to add new property for passing
HW resource ID to driver, the disadvantage is, I have to parse the thermal_zones' each child node
and get the HW resource ID from phandle argument(searing thermal_zones node and go through all its
child node, and get the phandle argument), they are by default ONLY parsed by thermal core
driver. When we register thermal zone, we have to pass the HW resource ID when calling
devm_thermal_zone_of_sensor_register(), if we add our own property to pass the HW resource ID,
then no need to do so, we just pass the index 0-N for each thermal sensors in devicetree which
also with phandle argument 0-N. So using our own property makes the driver much more simple.

So, @Eduardo, which direction I should go? Looks like Rob suggests just put the HW resource ID
in the phandle argument like what I did at the beginning, can you advise?

Thanks,
Anson.
