I considered that option, but the code in mpl3115_read_raw (and
mpl115_read_raw for that matter) return constants fro these values which
to me indicated that they were not "separate" and as that would also be
the change which replicated the exact behavior from before the regression
I went with that. But I don't care either way, so I can re-spin if you
want me to? (But don't blame me if that regresses in some other
interesting way).
