In linux kernel since version 3.10 (release Date: 2013-06-30)  
This enabled a thermal sysfs driver for the temperature sensor
which is connected to the General Purpose ADC. The ADC channel
is read via IIO framework and the channel information is provided
to this driver. This driver reports the temperature by reading ADC
channel and converts it to temperature based on lookup table.
