I thought about that, but this means playing with enabling/disabling
IRQs, which in the end I fear could be almost as verbose :/

Can you look at the new implementation that I proposed and give me your
feedback on it?
[PATCH v2 15/16] iio: adc: max1027: Add support for external triggers

I would say that "genericity" is a good enough reason for that, but in
practice I agree with you.
