Agreed and I usually do, but here, I've lost track when this driver has 
gone out of staging.

Based on:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/log/drivers/iio/accel/sca3000.c
The issue was already there on 2016/10/23, but when I try to go one step 
further:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/tree/drivers/staging/iio/accel/sca3000.c?id=2ccf61442ff142d2dde7c47471c2798a4d78b0ad
^^^^         ^^^^^^^
works but if I try to see the log for that:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/log/drivers/staging/iio/accel/sca3000.c
^^^         ^^^^^^^
is empty.

Most of the time, when I do it like that it works just fine, but not on 
this file.

Any other way to navigate in history of moved file would be appreciated.
