My only suggestion for adding all these chips' orientation features, is
to start the discussion independently from this driver. Are there other
device series that provide such an orientation interrupt? Is it worth
finding a representation in iio?

Additionally to portait up/down, landscape left/right there is
back/front facing, so you'd have 8 new channel modifiers.

If IIO_ROT is a current userspace "standard" to read for rotating the
screen, it may be worth discussing how to fit this in without new
modifiers. Would you have to make up fake angle values? Anything else
userspace already uses for getting the orientation?

But again, instead of replying here and going off topic, write up a
proposal and post it independently.
