Looks good to me:

Reviewed-by: Lars-Peter Clausen <>

When we initially added the DT support to IIO I was hoping that we can get 
away with just using the simple and generic xlate function for all devices. 
But it looks as if some more complex devices need to overwrite it. We should 
be careful about adding new driver specific xlate implementations and make 
sure that it is actually needed.

One thing we might want to consider though is instead of adding the xlate 
callback to the iio_dev struct add it to the iio_info struct since it should 
be the same for different device instances of the same driver. And this is 
also where all the other callbacks are.
