Fair enough I guess. Will need to check we aren't stepping on too many toes in
hwmon if we merge a second driver...

Sort of see IIO_TYPE_FRACTIONAL

Go ahead and have a go at defining a suitable ABI :)

Post it as a separate RFC though as discussion might be rather in depth and
not really driver related.
