I'm a little surprised that this would work without screaming a lot as
it will register an interrupt with no handlers. Do you have this
device to test? It's rapidly heading in the direction of too complex
a driver to fix without test hardware. Also, semantically this change
is not sensible as it implies an operating mode which the driver
is not using.

There are fundamental questions about how we handle an autotriggered
sweep that need answering before this driver can move forwards.
It needs some concept of a higher level trigger rather than a per
sample one like we typically use in IIO.

The main focus in the short term should be around defining that ABI
as it may fundamentally change the structure of the driver.
If you want to take this on (and it'll be a big job I think!) then
it may be possible to source some hardware to support that effort.

Thanks,

Jonathan

The absence of either of the interrupt related callbacks made me
wonder what is going on here. The upshot is that this device
isn't operating in a triggered buffer style at all so we really
shouldn't be using that infrastructure - even if it's convenient.

It'll allocate an interrupt with neither a top half nor a thread
function. I'm not sure what the core will do about that but it
seems unlikely to be happy about it!
