Hey,

Sorry for the late reply.
I'm also juggling a few things.

Yes.

So, there is a change in our tree [from some time ago].
See here:
https://github.com/analogdevicesinc/linux/commit/eee97d12665fef8cf429a1e5035b23ae969705b8

Particularly, what's interesting is around line:
https://github.com/analogdevicesinc/linux/commit/eee97d12665fef8cf429a1e5035b23ae969705b8#diff-0a87744ce945d2c1c89ea19f21fb35bbR722
And you may need to expand some stuff to see more of the function-body.
And some things may have changed in upstream IIO since that change.

The change is to make the pollfunc attach/detach become part of the IIO
framework, because plenty of drivers just call
iio_triggered_buffer_postenable() & iio_triggered_buffer_predisable() to
manually attach/detach the pollfunc for triggered buffers.

That change is from 2015, and since then, some drivers were added that just
manually attach/detach the pollfunc [and do nothing more with the
postenable/predisable hooks].

I tried to upstream a more complete version of that patch a while ago [u1].
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10482167/
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10737291/

The conclusion was to first fix the attach/detach pollfunc order in all IIO
drivers, so that when patch [u1] is applied, there is no more discussion
about the correct order for attach/detach pollfunc.

Coming back here [and to your question], my answer is: I don't know if the
at91 DMA needs to be enabled/disabled before/after the pollfunc
attach/detach.
This sounds like specific stuff for at91 [which is fine].

It could be that some other hooks may need to used to enable DMA
before/after the attach/detach pollfunc. Maybe preenable()/postdisable() ?

In any case, what I would like [with this discussion], is to resolve a
situation where we can get closer to moving the attach/pollfunc code to IIO
core. So, if AT91 requires a different ordering, I think you would be more
appropriate to tell me, and propose an alternative to this patch.

Thanks :)

Sure.
Will do that.

I did not bother much with these labels, because after applying [u1], some
of them [maybe all] should go away.
