Some more comments, the mcp4531 chips have n**2 + 1 positions,
therefore .max_pos in that driver isn't the number of wiper positions, it's
the actual maximum value. So, in this driver, the corrent number for
.max_pos would be 255, otherwise the reported scale is wrong (and then
you also need to adjust the EINVAL check in max5487_write_raw to use >
instead of >=).

Further comparison with the mcp4531 driver reveals that this driver does
not support IIO_CHAN_INFO_RAW in max5487_read_raw. I assume the SPI
interface does not support reading back the current value?
