I was thinking it may be an issue, but it's not iio because the
time I developed the driver, iio was in the first staging period
and mainly because the on the board I'm using I cannot update the
Kernel to use the latest iio.

I guess you don't like the promise "I can do it later" once the
supplier sends me a development board (which is planned) :)
