Can we provide DT bindings for that and use then in ACPI? ACPI has a
possibility to reuse DT properties and compatible strings [1]. As far
as I can see the driver uses fwnode API, so it supports ACPI case
already [2]. So, what prevents you to utilize 'adi,mode' property?

Also, we accept examples of ASL excerpt in meta-acpi project [3]. It
has already plenty of examples [4] how to use PRP0001 for DIY /
development boards.

So, take all together I think this patch is simple redundant.

P.S. Jonathan, it seems this driver has artificial ACPI HID. We
probably have to remove it. However, ADS is indeed reserved for Analog
Devices in PNP registry. Can we have AD's official answer on this?
Cc'ing additional AD people.
