Hi Bruce Saul,
I had submitted the patches into Kernel mail list, the concern is the
legacy application compatibility:
For the Ostro OS, Using Soletta framrwork, we have tested/verified
more more than 30 different I2C
But only the two devices have incorrect device names(the IIO name does
not match the I2C device name). QA team think it is a bug
