This is now commit b9ddd5091160793e ("iio: adc: max9611: Fix temperature
reading in probe") in v5.3-rc5, and has been backported to 4.14, 4.19,
and 5.2.

While this did fix a bug, it also introduced a regression: on Salvator-XS,
which has two max9611 instances, I now see intermittent failures

max9611 4-007c: Invalid value received from ADC 0x8000: aborting
max9611: probe of 4-007c failed with error -5

and/or

max9611 4-007f: Invalid value received from ADC 0x8000: aborting
max9611: probe of 4-007f failed with error -5

during boot.

Retrying on failure fixes the issue, e.g.:

max9611_init:483: regval = 0x8000
max9611 4-007f: Invalid value received from ADC 0x8000: aborting
max9611_init:483: regval = 0x2780

According to the datasheet, 0x8000 is the Power-On Reset value.
Looks like it should be ignored, and retried?

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,

Geert
