Sorry for the delay in replying to this mail. I am curious about the
status of this patch. I couldn't locate this patch at iio-blue.git as
it is not present in kernel.org now
(http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/jic23/iio-blue.git;a=summary)
Please ignore this mail if you have already added this patch to your tree.
