I wouldn't take my particular use case as evidence they are common, or
even they really exist. I got here because I loaded a hwmon driver
using the _DSD/PRP0001 mechanism in ACPI. In that case, those devices
have never worked with 'sensors' Therefore, in that context, this
change is just fixing a bug.
What I'm trying to understand what kind of regression we actually do
have here? Is it about listing the devices or does it also cease to show
for instance temperature sensor readings?
If it requires to add a match table to existing driver in order to
trigger this then at least stable tree is not worry here.
