Aye, will add this as new fourth patch then. I assume the chip reset in
adc128_init_client() clears the chip mode as well, so I will read it in
the operation mode block in adc128_probe().

Just out of interest: how does this help you test the modes? Do you
configure the chip externally and test it on a platform without
devicetree support?
