Just before registering channel to IIO, setting these values.
That is fine and how it is typically done. The bit that will need newsupport is if we have true floating point (e.g. need to encode the exponent in
individual readings). I don't have any real problem doing this other than annoyance based on the fact I doubt any of the underlying hardware is floating point (though I'd love to see a data sheet if it is!)

Changes compared to version 1: - Replaced Ring-SW with KFiFO - Accel-3d, Gyro-3D and Compass-3D uses 3 different channels for X, Y and Z - SysFS ( --- Changed "polling_interval" to sampling_frequency (IIO_DEV_ATTR_SAMP_FREQ) with units HZ --- Changed "sensitivity" to hyst_raw, which is already used by some ADC modules --- Removed "Activate". No longer need this. Using trigger state to activate/deactivate ) - Removed sysfs attributes for "xxx_offset". Instead using mask 0 in read_raw. So each sensor have only channels, sampling_frequency and hyst_raw as the ABI. - Additional patch to enable ST Micro sensor hub TBD for v3 - Use Lars-Peter's patch: "v2 1/9 patch: Add helper function for initialize trigger buffers). Want to make sure that API is final. DATA Format examples: Had few questions on data format for floating point. This spec uses. - First of size of each field is specified in report descriptor. So it is variableyuk. Thats annoying. I guess we'll have to extend the scan_type bit of IIO_CHAN to include this.- It uses VT_F16Ex format. For example VTF16E0 means 16 bit float with unit exponent 0. Refer to Page 43 of the "HID Sensor Usage Table" For example, if the size is 16 bits 0xFFF4 with VTF16E14 format -> -0.12 0xFFF8 with VTF16E14 format -> -0.08 0x0067 with VTF16E14 format -> +1.03 I tried sensor hubs from two different makers. One use 16 bit and other uses 32 bit for accelerometer. Also the unit expo is different for them. Also units are different.That shouldn't be a problem.Possible IIO addition: I wish we can add two more items for unit and unit_expo in IIO_CHAN_INFO_XXXX. So that we can add them during channel definition. Currently I am using offset and scale, which doesn't actually mean this.I am a little unclear on why they are different, ulitmately we are not have variable units for a given sensor type. That way just lies a whole pile of pain for userspace libraries. They are offsets and scales even if framed in different terminology as far as I can see.I think conversion should be done is user space based on the info provided.
