Absolutely understood.  No problem if you don't have time / energy to
do this stuff.  I very much appreciate it when you do, but I know how
unrewarding it can be!

That's more or less the only reason I write IIO patches currently!
Though I get to mostly avoid seeing the faces of those who fall
into the traps of old code we should have tidied up years ago :(
Not gotten near any of new hardware pile of IIO hardware in a long time.
Plenty of other new hardware, but not IIO stuff!
