I'm going to take this one via the slow path to give it a bit of time
to soak in linux-next. I think we are fine for unexpected side effects
but it's been there for a long time so we can take this slowly.

Applied to the togreg branch of iio.git and pushed out as testing for
the autobuilders to play with it.

Thanks,

Jonathan
