Sorry Alex,

The IIO merge window for a given cycle closes at least a week before Linus
announces the opening of the main merge window. This is partly due to the
path that IIO patches take to Linus (via Greg KH who operates a policy of
not taking anything after Linus starts hinting that the final RC for the
previous version is out) and partly as it's good general best practice
as it leaves some time for patches to sit in linux-next and get hammered
by the autobuilders, identifying any merge conflicts etc.

So this is firmly 4.6 material now anyway so we have lots of time to
dot the 'i's and cross the 't's!

(If it had been marginal I 'might' have enacted Martin's suggestions
as I applied the patch) but no point in taking the risk I might mess
it up so early in a cycle!
