SubjectRe: [PATCH] iio: dac: ad5593r: Dynamically set AD5593R channel modes
Hi Jonathan and Andy,

This patch is mainly for Advantech's UNO-420[1] which is a x86-based platform.
This platform is more like a development platform for customers to
customize their products,
so, specify the channel modes in ACPI table is not generic enough,
that's why William submit this patch.

Are there other ways to specify or pass values to the module without
using module parameters?
It's good if we can leverage sysfs, but I don't know if there is one
for this scenario.
