Well, we've have some discussion about this, and how to do it.
There are several alternatives.

Some of the ideas were:
1. Keep the static data and clone it + populate the adis_timeout data as
needed during probe [based on each device's chip-info]
2. Rework all the chip-info data to include the adis_data types/info

2. may require more work ; 1. require fewer patches

This implementation [in this series] is 1. but without keeping the static
data and template.
I guess the idea was to reduce memory usage [by keeping the static data]. I
admit the memory usage is not that big.

I'll take a look at this again, and see if 2. can work more nicely.
It might be that 1. would be the end-result, but who knows?

Thanks
Alex
