well, we have three thermal uclass devices on i.MX8QXP:
thermal 0 [ ] imx_sc_thermal |-- thermal-sensor
thermal 1 [ ] imx_sc_thermal | |-- cpu-thermal0
thermal 2 [ ] imx_sc_thermal | `-- drc-thermal0
when using uclass_get_device(UCLASS_THERMAL, 0, &thermal_dev), the
first device ("thermal-sensor") is matching and for this device
imx_sc_thermal_ofdata_to_platdata() will be called, it then tries to
get the "thermal-sensors" list in the node of "thermal-sensor" device
(dev_of_offset(dev)), but this is wrong, since this list is a property
of the "cpu-thermal0" node according to bindings.
Therefore ofdata_to_platdata() can't find the "thermal-sensors" list
and does not initialize alert/critical pdata values.
When uclass_get_device_by_name() is used, then imx_sc_thermal_ofdata_to_platdata()
is called for "cpu-thermal0" device, here getting the list works
and alert/critical pdata values are initialized properly.
