Sorry about that, legacy of a much older version. I definitely didn't clean
this driver up properly (iio core is still a fair way off going anywhere so
I'll admit I didn't didn't check the drivers using it as thoroughly as I
should
have)

To used to userspace programming! I'll fix them.

Good point.

Again a good point. I'll clean it up and repost.

Thanks for the hints,
