Hold on Maxime,

Non-DT is important for us as several boards are not converted to DT and
I guess that some never will. Moreover, some AT91 SoC will certainly
never be converted to DT but all are equipped with ADC...

So I would really like to keep the non-DT probing. This will give the
ability for users to experiment IIO/ADC with whichever kernel revision,
whichever AT91 SoC they like.

Arnd, we will have to agree on a way to push this work into mainline,
but please consider keeping the non-DT part for this driver.

Best regards,
