Subject: [PATCH 3.4 32/44] staging: comedi: das08: Correct AI encoding for das08jr-16-ao

3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Ian Abbott <>

commit e6391a182865efc896cb2a8d79e07b7ac2f45b48 upstream.

The element of `das08_boards[]` for the 'das08jr-16-ao' board has the
`ai_encoding` member set to `das08_encode12`.  It should be set to
`das08_encode16` same as the 'das08jr/16' board.  After all, this board
has 16-bit AI resolution.

The description of the A/D LSB register at offset 0 seems incorrect in
the user manual "cio-das08jr-16-ao.pdf" as it implies that the AI
resolution is only 12 bits.  The diagrams of the A/D LSB and MSB
registers show 15 data bits and a sign bit, which matches what the
software expects for the `das08_encode16` AI encoding method.
