The flush attribute comes from a requirement from Android to ask the
sensorhub to flush the samples still in its FIFO queue. (see
https://source.android.com/devices/sensors/hal-interface#flush_sensor)
It has been implemented in the ST Android HAL, which expects a
hw_fifo_flush attribute.:
https://github.com/STMicroelectronics/STMems_Android_Sensor_HAL_IIO/blob/STMems_Android_Sensor_HAL_IIO/src/utils.cpp#L31

But I misread kernel ST code; as you said, the request to flush
appends only when the buffer is enabled/disabled or the sensor
suspended, it is not exposed to user space.

For Bosh sensor : there is a patch that was proposed a while back:
"http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1504.3/03270.html", but it
never reached mainline.

For HID, the attribute is defined in the HID specification (31C) :
https://www.usb.org/sites/default/files/hutrr59_-_usages_for_wearables_0.pdf
but I could not find a publicly available proposed change request that uses it.

Anyhow, it was a mistake to put this patch in the current patch set. I
need it on chromebook for supporting Android, but it should be
discussed more widely to have it part of the ABI, or define a better
solution.
