Hello Lars,

As per your suggestion Can I move complete Driver out of staging specially SPI ADC Driver.

Only if they are cleaned up first. All of the drivers that are still in staging do have issues, otherwise we'd already had moved them. A few of them are OK codestyle wise, but do have ABI issues which need to be resolved before they can be moved.

This was the action item(TO-DO). IMO, it make sense to move into
include/linux/iio because IIO complete subsystem may take some time.

The code that is in staging is not supposed to 'leak' outside of staging. So either you move the driver as a whole out of staging or leave it there, but do not move individual files of the driver out of staging. The action item is for when the driver is moved out of staging.
