This is a very minor problem, so no wonder that nobody noticed or
bothered to fix it yet. I'm just clarifying the status here.

For now I see that the rising edge isn't needed, the TEMP_ALERT goes
HIGH by itself when temperature backs to normal. But I will try to
double check.

Thank you for suggestion, I will take a look.

I have a patch that will add the interrupt property, it's stashed
locally for the next kernel release.

IIUC, it's not only the Tegra30 dts, but all the TegraXXX boards that
use IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_LOW are in the same position.

Thank you for reviewing this patch. I'll prepare v2.
