max597x has 10bit ADC for voltage & current monitoring.
Use iio framework to expose the same in sysfs.

I'm not a fan of wild cards in driver names. This doesn't
for example support the max5974, max5971 etc

Much better to name it after one of the supported parts.
Obviously can't do much about the mfd driver now, but I'd prefer
not to carry that through to the IIO driver if possible.

One concern I have here is that from the max5978 datasheet I see
this device supports features that are very much directed at hwmon
type usecases.  In particular warning and critical threshold detection.
We don't support multiple thresholds (in same direction) for a single
channel via IIO.  If you want those features in the future you may want
to consider using the hwmon subsystem.

We tend to be flexible with devices that sit near the boundary of IIO
and hwmon because we can bridge many of the features using the iio-hwmon
bridge driver.  That doesn't work for more complex event handling and
I suspect some of the other features this device provides.
I believe it is the most appropriate approach for our use case at the moment. If we decide to incorporate more complex event handling or need to support multiple thresholds in the future, we will definitely consider using the hwmon subsystem. Thank for your input.
Changes in V2:
- Remove fallthrough
- Use pdev->dev instead of i2c->dev
- Init indio_dev->name based on device type.

Sure. Will mention max5970 & max5978 in help section.

I replied late to previous patch, but I'd prefer to see a bulk read if
possible.  It might ensure a matched pair, or if not reduce the chance of
tearing (when reg_l & 3 transitions from 3 to 0 for example and
reg_h & 1 is going from 0 to 1)

You could try a repeated read if the sampling rate is fairly low as
simply getting same high bits on either side of the low bit read is probably
enough to say tearing didn't happen.
Yes. will use something like:
		ret = regmap_bulk_read(data->regmap, chan->address - 1, &reg_l, 2);
		if (ret < 0)
			return ret;
		reg_h = reg_l & 0xff;
		reg_l = (reg_l >> 8) & 0xff;
		*val = (reg_h << 2) | (reg_l & 3);

+		case MAX5970_REG_CURRENT_L(1):

+			*val = data->irng[chan->channel] * 1000;

Don't worry about 80 char limit when it hurts readability.  Just put that
on one line.

Comment doesn't add anything is is wrong anyway as this doesn't do the
majority of the registration. Dropt he comment.
