[lm-sensors] Location for thermal drivers

We have a review for a thermal driver for the Intel MID platform pending
against the hwmon subsystem. See
http://lists.lm-sensors.org/pipermail/lm-sensors/2010-November/030471.html for details.
I think a better location for the driver would be drivers/thermal.
drivers/hwmon is not really a good fit, since hwmon support for thermal
drivers is optional. Potential problem with drivers/thermal is that
there are no thermal drivers in there (yet), and there does not seem to
be a maintainer. Another alternative would be to put it into platform
code, similar to the existing thermal drivers.
Thought, anyone ? Is there a preferred location for thermal drivers ?
