This is a fun corner when it comes to DT bindings where we may
have fallback compatibles for parts introduced in the future.
For those we are supposed to ignore ID registers and just
assume they are correct (in IIO I tends to suggest we print
a message to say we are carrying on despite not recognising the
ID)  We could go half way here and assume the channel count
can always be gotten from the register, but relax the family bit
to allow families that aren't yet 'born'.

If we don't assume channel count, we would need to add explicit
entries to the ID tables for each of the device supported.

Anyhow, I have no problem leaving that as a problem for another day.

The way you've done this will not work if you want to add a timestamp
(which is tricky in this device anyway) but for now it is fine.

I tweaked the order in kconfig and Makefile whilst applying.
The relevant sections aren't in alphanumeric order as currently
the TI parts with longer names come later. Having said that this
fits better after ADS1100 than where you have it so I've moved
it up to there.

sparse isn't happy (and I upgraded it to make sure I had anything new for guard() etc)

I think it is the missing context tracking referred to here:

Anyhow, looks like false positives so applied to the togreg branch of iio.git
but first pushed out as testing to let 0-day take a look.
