Is there a reason this isn't a module? I don't think it's needed to mount
rootfs.

(Not merged until clarified).

It's not needed to mount the rootfs, but this is needed on one of our
SoCs to store the bin, and thus the cpufreq settings to apply, and on
all our SoCs to store the calibration data for the thermal sensor,
which in turn is used for thermal throttling.

Both are important enough so that they don't depend on a module being
loaded to me, but I'm not really sure what the policy is here.

Yeah, thermal should likely be enabled without rootfs/modules, so
that's ok in this case.

Merged now, thanks!
