hwmon: (core) add thermal sensors only if dev->of_node is present
[ Upstream commit c41dd48e21fae3e55b3670ccf2eb562fc1f6a67d ] Drivers may register to hwmon and request for also registering with the thermal subsystem (HWMON_C_REGISTER_TZ). However, some of these driver, e.g. marvell phy, may be probed from Device Tree or being dynamically allocated, and in the later case, it will not have a dev->of_node entry. Registering with hwmon without the dev->of_node may result in different outcomes depending on the device tree, which may be a bit misleading. If the device tree blob has no 'thermal-zones' node, the *hwmon_device_register*() family functions are going to gracefully succeed, because of-thermal, *thermal_zone_of_sensor_register() return -ENODEV in this case, and the hwmon error path handles this error code as success to cover for the case where CONFIG_THERMAL_OF is not set. However, if the device tree blob has the 'thermal-zones' entry, the *hwmon_device_register*() will always fail on callers with no dev->of_node, propagating -EINVAL. If dev->of_node is not present, calling of-thermal does not make sense. For this reason, this patch checks first if the device has a of_node before going over the process of registering with the thermal subsystem of-thermal interface. And in this case, when a caller of *hwmon_device_register*() with HWMON_C_REGISTER_TZ and no dev->of_node will still register with hwmon, but not with the thermal subsystem. If all the hwmon part bits are in place, the registration will succeed.
