SubjectRe: [PATCH v4] dt-bindings: iio: accel: add binding documentation for ADIS16240

+CC Mark as we probably need a more general view point on
the question of whether SPI mode should be enforced by binding
or in the driver.

I have wondered the same and have a few boards that do this sort of thing.
My personal feeling is that such level convertors should have explicit
representation rather than being hidden in changes to
the devicetree. Perhaps via a single input single output mux that
would wrap up the actions of any inverters in the path.

As you say, the alternative is to just leave it to the devicetree bindings.
