The i2c entry is fine.

Great. That means it is out there so is a defacto binding even if
there isn't an official Doc. Sadly a lot of device manufacturers
don't do this stuff the way they are supposed to!

It's all good given you've confirmed the ID is out there in the wild.

Applied to the togreg branch of iio.git and pushed out as testing for
autobuilders to poke at.

Note we've missed the merge window now so this will take a while to get
into the mainline kernel - should be in linux-next in a few weeks though.

Thanks,

Jonathan
