This is become a repeating problem

Either get the IIO layer out of staging (where it appears to have
congealed) or stop asking people to use it. IIO stuck in staging is
becoming a problem not a cure. It's creating uncertainty blocking lots of
stuff that needs to get upstream and that current stream is going to
become a tide post Android merging.

It needs resolving one way or the other and soon.
