No problem, I've already picked that one.

I'm going to guess that we could probably drop the iio_dev part of the
stm32-timer-trigger entirely, though I'm not totally sure so wouldn't be
confident doing it without someone having hardware to test. In particular
there may be some connections between whether the device is enabled and
the triggers working that isn't documented anywhere that I can spot.

Whilst that's still in place, I'm going to pick up patch 1 of this set, but
leave patch 2. The ABI is clearly marked deprecated so we shouldn't get
new users and we can pick up that patch hwen the stm32-timer-trigger has
been tidied up as well.

Applied patch 1. Thanks,

Jonathan
