That doesn't seem to be mentioned in the datasheets but I guessed that
is a repacking of existing devices.

The gyro part of the patch only adds IDs. It's ~10 lines spread around
many files.

For accel/magn parts there is a WHOAMI different from all others present
and some registers also seem to be different. There doesn't seem to be
explicit support for "LSM303D".

I have no urgent need for this to work, I'm fine with waiting some time
for st_sensor combo support.

I can repost the gyro and accel+magn parts separately. But it's not
clear that supporting an accel-only device would still make sense once
combo support is available. So maybe I should just repost the gyro patch
adding IDs?
