As there is no way to know the valid values I suspect it ought to pick
nearest inclusive for others <=8 ?

Similarly for the others

We have runtime_pm for this (and in fact to switch from the bma023 driver
I posted to yours we'd need runtime pm)

This was nacked in the bma023 driver by the IIO folks - and Dmitry
pointed out you can do this without a sysfs hack. The trick is to do an
initial poll in input_open at which point the ioctl query for the
position will have data that is current and open/ioctl/close works and
providing we go nail that into other drivers that need that kind of use
the API is generic and input event based.

0-200 whats ?

How does this differ from the power one and why is it needed, why doesn't
it disable when not in use ? How does this interact with runtime pm

A lot of remarkably similar functions

This locking would go away if you dropped the un-needed sysfs node

Most bma023 users will be IRQ based, so this driver would need chunks
extracting from the other bma023 driver submission for that to be handled.

What locks sysfs_enable ?


From the Intel side to use your driver instead of bma023 we'd need IRQ
support and runtime pm but otherwise it looks basically ok. I really
don't see how to reconcile proper power management with all your sysfs
enables and power bits though ?
