Thanks for answering Jonathan and Stefan.

I would like to contribute with the ad7150 driver. Could you please
give me some hints on what can I do to move this driver
out of staging?

I note that device registration (devm_iio_device_register) is not
the last function called at probe function. Should I change order
to call dev_info before the device registration?

Also did not see any device tree documentation at
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/iio for AD7150 driver.
