(I'm the maintainer of LIS3LV02D)
I completely agree with you, accelerometer drivers do not belong to
hwmon. Unfortunately, so far there has not been any landing place which
looked really more relevant. As soon as such a thing is available (maybe
an "accelerometer" subsystem) I'll be happy to move the driver :-)
