It was my mistake. Thanks for the encouragement :-)

Starting from what you suggested, here's what I came up with.
I also added a few test cases to cover corner cases.

	if (scale_type == IIO_VAL_INT_PLUS_NANO)
		mult = 1000000000LL;
	else
		mult = 1000000LL;
	/*
	 * For IIO_VAL_INT_PLUS_{MICRO,NANO} scale types if *val OR
	 * *val2 is negative the schan scale is negative
	 */
	neg = *val < 0 || *val2 < 0;

	tmp = (s64)abs(*val) * (s32)abs(rescale->numerator);
	*val = div_s64_rem(tmp, (s32)abs(rescale->denominator), &rem);

	tmp = (s64)rem * mult +
		(s64)abs(*val2) * (s32)abs(rescale->numerator);
	tmp = div_s64(tmp, (s32)abs(rescale->denominator));

	*val += div_s64_rem(tmp, mult, val2);

	/*
	 * If the schan scale or only one of the rescaler elements is
	 * negative, the combined scale is negative.
	 */
	if (neg || ((rescale->numerator < 0) ^ (rescale->denominator < 0)))
		*val = -*val;

	return scale_type;

Thanks for the explanation, I thought it might matter but I agree that
the asymmetry looks odd. I'll fix it.

Thanks,
