SubjectRe: [PATCH v4 1/3] iio: Add modifier for white light

it is a mess already :), there is
_intensity
_intensity_ir
_intensity_both
_intensity_uv
_intensity_red
_intensity_green
_intensity_blue
_intensity_clear

I think that ir, uv, red, green, blue are filters for particular ranges
of the spectrum

_intensity_clear might be unfiltered and _intensity might relate to the
human eye photopic curve, I think the proposed white might be the same as
clear?

'both' means ir + _intensity (not clearly specified)

regards, p.
