I've now sucked this into my staging-testing branch and if 0-day is fine
with it, I'll merge it to staging-next in a day or so. This way you can
build on it for any iio drivers that might be coming.

I do have reservations about that one sysfs file that is multi-line, and
I think it will come to bite you in the end over time, so I reserve the
right to say "I told you so" when that happens...

But, I don't have a better answer for it now, so don't really worry
about it :)
