Careful. That's there as a null terminator for this list of available scan masks.

Pretty much. IIRC This originally went in as part of handling multiple clients on these
data streams, but it was rapidly pointed out that lots of drivers spun their own
versions to break out particular elements from a multichannel read.
As such, using the generic form saved on repetition in these cases as well.
A good, complex example is drivers/iio/adc/max1363 in which really weird combinations
of channels (but far from all) are available for bulk capture and reading.
