Just to clear any confusion: this wasn't a criticism from my side. I
understand why it takes time. All I mean is that it is not reasonable
to delay other changes waiting for IIO to hit mainline. Because we have
no idea when that will happen.

Let's see if he wants them. I seem to recall he objected to them going
to input, on the basis that the input function was a not the key
feature. But apparently we have one accel driver in drivers/input/misc
(adxl34x) so maybe we can have more.
