The last statement I have from Dmitry is from

"lis3lv02d could either go into drivers/misc or stay where it is for the
time being, pending resolution on overall IIO/Input/accelerometers
decision. I'd take it in input/misc but accelerometer guys need to
decide on common sysfs layout for such devices."

I don't know if things changed is this area?

They are in my staging tree for the time being, which means they can
easily be amended. We have a few weeks left to do so if needed (until
the next merge window opens.)
