yes, of course.

a string used in
       of_property_read_string(priv->drm.dev->of_node,
                                "epd-thermal-zone", &thermal);
        if (thermal) {
                priv->thermal = thermal_zone_get_zone_by_name(thermal);
                if (IS_ERR(priv->thermal))
                        return dev_err_probe(priv->drm.dev, PTR_ERR(priv->thermal),
                                             "unable to get thermal");
        }

hmm, does IHMO not make too much sense here. E.g. in the imx6sll.dtsi
we have lcd-controller next to it. So having epd-controller? But that
is exactly what epdc stands for.
