[RFC PATCH 2/3] iio: core: change channel's storagebits/realbits to u32

From: Teodora Baluta
Date: Thu Dec 04 2014 - 08:00:59 EST

In order to fit a channel that describes a fingerprint scan the u8 range is
not enough. For example, a scan whose height is 384 pixels and whose
width is 144, for a bit depth of 8 bits per pixels, the total bits would
be 384 x 144 x 8 = 442368, well over the u8 maximum 255 value.

Fix that by changing the realbits and storagebits fields in the
iio_chan_spec struct to u32.
