Hey,

This seems to have been in the context of our tree.
We have this patch:
https://github.com/analogdevicesinc/linux/commit/81d00795b1537

That removes bitmap_copy() .
See here:
https://github.com/analogdevicesinc/linux/commit/81d00795b1537#diff-0a87744ce945d2c1c89ea19f21fb35bbL397

This change is not upstreamed yet.
I guess I am slowly going nuts with trying to sync multiple trees [
our master, upstream IIO & some internal temp-branches ].

To give a bit of background: we've noticed this weird behavior while
testing a AD7193 chip with the AD7192 driver and some weird things
were happening.
At the time, this patch seemed easy to send upstream, so I sent it.

Sorry for the noise.

I guess the conclusion is, that in the context of the mainline IIO
tree, commit 20ea39ef9f2f is not needed.

Thanks
Alex
