Subject: Re: [PATCH] iio: adc: viperboard: Call platform_set_drvdata before

I don't think the driver data is accessed from within any of the IIO device
callbacks. In fact I don't think it is accessed at all with the latest
conversion to devm_iio_device_register(). So I think the call to
platform_set_drvdata can just be removed.
