Re: [PATCH] iio: srf04: fix wrong limitation in distance measuring

I'm so sorry for the delay. I was working on another project now, and I wasn't entirely devoted to this. I looked at it at the weekend and the modified code is working. I have only tested OpenWRT in build - r10204-38b22b1, kernel 4.14.125. I do not expect complications on other platforms.
I tried it on several sensors. I was primarily interested in JSN-SR04T (https://www.makerguides.com/jsn-sr04t-arduino-tutorial/). I have also verified other designs (https://randomnerdtutorials.com/complete-guide-for-ultrasonic-sensor-hc-sr04/).
It generally works. Relatively accurate for the area up to 2.5 m. However, if the distance is longer, it starts to fizz, depending on the sensor design. It is a property of used HW and its construction.
I do not know how to do this in the development of drivers, whether it makes sense to put a filter directly into the driver or at least pull the maximum distance parameter as a variable?
Anyway, the change made works.
