Shinji,

If you reimplement this driver to use the new Generic Counter API, I can
pick it up and include it with my next patchset submission. Please base
your patches ontop of the "generic_counter_v10" branch from my personal
repository:

https://gitlab.com/vilhelmgray/iio/commits/generic_counter_v10

Documentation can be found at:

	Documentation/driver-api/generic-counter.rst
	Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-bus-counter

Look at the existing drivers inside the drivers/counter directory to
serve as references:

	drivers/counter/ftm-quaddec.c
	drivers/counter/stm32-timer-cnt.c

If you have any troubles or difficulties with the API, send me a message
and I will be happy to help. :-)

Thank you,

William Breathitt Gray
