Subject: [PATCH] thermal: qcom: spmi-adc-tm5: Don't abort probing if a sensor is not used
Date: Mon, 23 Aug 2021 13:47:30 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210823134726.1.I1dd23ddf77e5b3568625d80d6827653af071ce19@changeid> (raw)

adc_tm5_register_tzd() registers the thermal zone sensors for all
channels of the thermal monitor. If the registration of one channel
fails the function skips the processing of the remaining channels
and returns an error, which results in _probe() being aborted.

One of the reasons the registration could fail is that none of the
thermal zones is using the channel/sensor, which hardly is a critical
error (if it is an error at all). If this case is detected emit a
warning and continue with processing the remaining channels.

Fixes: ca66dca5eda6 ("thermal: qcom: add support for adc-tm5 PMIC thermal monitor")
