I'm glad you highlighted this subtlety. I'm not sure it's safe in all cases
because the result is that the managed cleanup for this will occur once we
get to the cleanup for devm_iio_device_alloc and we release the indio_dev->dev

That would put it 'after' any other devm calls that are still hung off the parent
device.

Now the question is whether that ever causes us problems... See next patch.
It potentially does. I think we need to provide the dev separately even
if it feels a bit silly to do so. Scope management is complex so I don't
really want to force people to mix and match between different devices
and so get it wrong by accident.

The other issue is that it's not readily apparent from the naming that
this function is registering stuff that is cleaned up automatically or
that it even allocates anything that might need that..

devm_iio_device_attach_new_kfifo_buffer maybe?

I'm sort of wondering if we should do what dma did and have

iiom_device_attach_new_kfifo_buffer to indicate it's managed in the
scope of the iio device?

What do people think?

However, see patch 2 before commenting. Reality is I'm not sure forcing
managed calls to hang off iio_dev->dev is a good idea (at this stage given
where we are).

Thanks

Jonathan
