[PATCH 4.6 056/121] hwmon: (ads7828) Enable internal reference

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Sun Jun 05 2016 - 18:12:23 EST

4.6-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Akshay Bhat <akshay.bhat@xxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 7a18afe8097731b8ffb6cb5b2b3b418ded77c105 upstream.

On ads7828 the internal reference defaults to off upon power up. When
using internal reference, it needs to be turned on and the voltage needs
to settle before normal conversion cycle can be started. Hence perform a
dummy read in the probe to enable the internal reference allowing the
voltage to settle before performing a normal read.

Without this fix, the first read from the ADC when using internal
reference always returns incorrect data.
