This adds a SUN8I_THERMAL that I can't find in the tree? (this also goes for
the 32-bit branch)

Also, is there a reason to have it =y, or would =m suffice? I see that RCAR is
=y, but we should revisit that as well.

This is a new driver that got merged through the thermal tree and
should be in 5.6 as well:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/thermal/linux.git/commit/?h=thermal/linux-next&id=730a45ccd9322dd918a5dcaf8ae1482400fa5b23

That driver is used for thermal throttling which is pretty critical
for us since the boards can get pretty hot, pretty fast (and they
don't have a pretty wide temperature operating range either), so it
felt natural to have it as y?

The way we have been handling this is that we add the config options
after the merge window instead. Because right now, if someone runs
savedefconfig, they disappear.

So, please submit after -rc1 (but not too far after) to enable new
drivers merged in that window.

The problem with this is that all platforms now have to pay the price
of keeping this driver in memory even if it's not needed on that
hardware. This is why we're pushing back on drivers being statically
built in on the large shared defconfigs.

Loading it from ramdisk is usually done early enough that it works out for
these cases, or from rootfs if needed.

Ok, I'll send them right after -rc1 then ...

And with the options as module. Thanks!
