Looking into my old e-mail, turns out we did not add the parent device because
it affected the output of the "sensors" command, and we wanted the device
to be handled as 'virtual device' (which implies no parent). That was an explicit
part of the patch set (v2 of 'net: dsa: Add support for reporting switch chip
temperatures'), compared to v1, which did set the parent device.

I would suggest to keep the code as is.

Thanks,
Guenter
