So now we have conflicting claims that the hwmon driver would need
to implement continuous interrupts because the chip otherwise doesn't
continuously measure ADC input, and that implementing an IIO driver
isn't possible or doesn't make sense because the chip would not support
generating continuous interrupts. Which one is it ? Am I missing something ?
