Hi Krysxtof,

This file almost similar to below patch


I had to create this new file as I was not able to register
#thermal-sensors to tmu_cpu0.

+       thermal-zones {
+               cpu0_thermal: cpu0-thermal {
+                       thermal-sensors = <&tmu_cpu0 0>;
+                       polling-delay-passive = <0>;
+                       polling-delay = <0>;

Earlier the DTS sensor's were not getting registers to the tmu_cpu0 sensors.

I am not aware If this file will be common to Exynos5 series.
I could not include any common dts file as I would through me
compilation error hence .dtsi  extension,
