There is no such info. But since whoIam and register map is same, we can use
same table of l3gd20.

lsm303d is a combo device, not currently supported into ST architecture.
When it will be ok, we can support in same table lsm303d and lsm9ds0 (accel & magn)
if I remember corretly (since are sharing ID and register map).

That's great. I will keep you updated.

I think we can proceed with gyro patch. So, you can provide a patch that adds
lsm9ds0_gyro part.
