It's a somewhat unusual feature, so I doubt it was implemented without someone
needing it.  However as you observe there is no upstream user.

As it is causing you problems, I'd just rip out the palmas_adc_platform_data
completely and see if anyone objects.  You can do that as a standalone patch
prior to posting your events stuff if you like.  Or hopefully
H. Nikolaus Schaller might be able to give us some background on why
that feature is there but not used.

No problem.  I jumped on the opportunity to get it tested - takes way longer
than writing a little patch like that ;)
