The patch is fine, but this description is confusing.

of_device_id is a device tree table (confusing naming in the
kernel, but of is open firmware, a standard from which device tree
emerged).

I've just dropped this second paragraph from the description to
avoid confusion.

Applied to the togreg branch of iio.git and pushed out as testing
for the autobuilders to play with it.

Thanks,

Jonathan
