It's good to notify people who either maintainer or involved enough. Putting
mailing lists into Cc explicitly is not good practice.

Keeping as in the data sheet is okay, but since it's very confusing naming,
the comment in the is a must.

15 seems the right one then?

Easier to read. Just from practice and wishes of several maintainers.

I'm not a maintainer here, but for the record I do not like this style at all.

Try your best here. Magic numbers in general are not good.

Yes. Several if:s.

I meant if you need to take care about this it seems to me that it has to be
thought of on regmap level. I.o.w. what is the rationale behind this additional
check?

I'm not even sure why it's in ASCII instead being directly binary file.

Read include/linux/byteorder/generic.h to the end.

I see. Up to you then.

I believe that IIO has a generic method to print tables via sysfs. AFAIR it is
done via "_avail".

In this case is not needed, just typed as more often seen pattern :)

Okay, this is for maintainers to decide.

You free to call devm_kfree() when appropriate.

I think you will need to replace it with a forward declaration.
