Why would introduce such a dependency for really no good reason?

Submit a patch based on the current binding, then when/if your proposed
binding update hits mainline, you can send a *single* patch dropping the
parameters from all qualcomm dtsi.

Updating the binding is a separate and lower priority task. In fact, it
may not even be desirable at all as an omission of adding these
parameters could then lead to broken thermal management on platforms
where the interrupts do not work. Having an explicit poll-delay of zero
at least gives people a reason to think about it when merging a new

But again, that's a separate discussion. Don't make this patch depend on

That's not proper testing. Add/enable debugging in the thermal driver
and make sure that you trigger precisely once when passing the threshold
in both directions.
