This submission probably won't go anywhere, since it's against the
downstream tree and they're not really watching this list.

If you'd like to send a pair of patches upstream, one to the thermal
subsystem for the Kconfig, and one to ARM for the upstream arm64
defconfig, that would be helpful.  Be sure to use
scripts/get_maintainers.pl to figure out who you need to Cc, and see
Documentation/SubmittingPatches for general requirements
