What you've suggested isn't correct. The problem here is that the offset is
added first to the raw ADC reading, without factoring the ADC value accordingly
to match the factor of the offset. If we take the original equation provided for
this channel of the ADC, the offset is actually 0.5 which should be added to the
raw ADC value. This doesn't fit into the implementation in the kernel as we
can't use floating point. If we multiply the offset but not the raw ADC value,
then add them before applying the scale factor, then the result is wrong at the
end. Basically you need a scale for the raw ADC value to match the offset scale
so you can achieve the correct results, which is what my calculation does.
But that seems impossible with the current raw|offset|scale method.

Ok, should still work ok that way so can update.

I assume you mean here that iio_device_unregister() should come first? Will
update.
