Sorry, I assumed that was already the case and didn't think of checking
that from what I was given, I'll fix the prefix to "iio: core: .." in v2

Hm, I did check that and do not get any warning about the code itself:

$ git show --format=email | ./scripts/ -q
WARNING: DT binding docs and includes should be a separate patch. See: Documentation/devicetree/bindings/submitting-patches.rst

total: 0 errors, 1 warnings, 61 lines checked

What are you thinking of?

Regarding the dt binding, I'm not actually changing a binding so I
didn't think of rechecking after adding the note, but I guess it still
ought to be separate; I'll split it in v2.

I'm not sure I understand this comment -- would you rather this doesn't
use aliases but instead add a new label (e.g. `iio,index = <10>` or
whatever) to the iio node itself?

Setting up a fixed alias seems to be precisely what aliases are about
(e.g. setting rtc0 will make a specific node become /dev/rtc0, same with
ethernet0, gpio, i2c, mmc, serial...), I'm not sure I agree a new label
would be more appropriate here, but perhaps I'm missing some context?
