There's a lot of overlap between subsystems here - as well as the
thermal management stuff where the information hwmon gathers may be a
useful input to that the information exported by hwmon can also show up
in the power supply subsystem, and there's the possible overlap with
IIO as well as obviously the hardware monitoring may be being done using
something that's basically just a generic ADC.
