I have no plans for supporting buffered output for the AXPs at the
moment. But that's an interesting (and important) limitation to raise.
Wouldn't be more of a hack to have two IIO devices representing the
actual same IP?

I guess that you're offering to use IIO_CHAN_INFO_SAMP_FREQ in
info_mask_separate for each channel?

I'm not giving the user the option to chose the sampling frequency for
now. I have no plans to do it either, but I think it would be rather
simple to later add support for setting frequency sampling since we only
need to add a sysfs entry (with IIO_CHAN_INFO_SAMP_FREQ) that does not
exist yet. Don't you think? Am I missing something?
