Add iio_hwmon node to expose the temperature channel on Vybrid as

The first version of the patch was send quite a while ago.

Shawn you had requested that hyphen rather than underscore should
be used in node name. I looked into that.

The iio_hwmon driver calls hwmon_device register_with_groups inside
hwmon.c and this

does not allow hyphen in hwmon name attribute. I was not aware of
this but while trying to test the change, the device probe failed
with EINVAL. I think we should stick to the existing use of the
bindings or we need to change the hwmon code as well along with the
existing device tree files and binding documentation.

I disagree.

If hyphen is invalid to be part of hwmon name attribute, the following
code in iio_hwmon_probe() is plain wrong, because hyphen is very valid
to be part of node names in device tree.

         if (dev->of_node && dev->of_node->name)
                 name = dev->of_node->name;

I agree with what you state here, however as you can see the hwmon_device_
register_with_groups does check for hypen with strpbrk and returns EINVAL.
Changing to hyphen instead of currently present underscore in iio_hwmon
node name causes probe failure.

If the node name needs to have hyphen, then the check for hyphen as an invalid
character in hwmon name attribute needs to be changed. I am CC'ing the hwmon
subsystem maintainers Jean Delvare ands Guenter Roeck as well as hwmon list to

@Jean & Guenter
Can you please comment if the change to hwmon_device_register_with_groups
to accept hyphen as a valid character in hwmon name attribute will be acceptable?

User space would not like the '-' and get confused.

We'll have to change the above code and replace '-' with '_' in the name if/when
it is seen. Sorry, I didn't realize the problem when I wrote that code.


Sorry if this is sudden andfor bringing you late into the discussion Jean and

Thanks & Regards,


Changes since v1:
1. Expose ADC1 temperature channel as well
2. Move the entry outside of the aips1 bus node

Best Regards,
