As demonstrated by this one, they are often registered under effectively random names!
Digging out those random names and associating them with a particular chip is always
going to be a non trivial job.

Hence I'm happy to take these as they stand. We can add more entries when we come
across them.

Shirang has done a good job identifying this one and sending it upstream.
Be nice Linus and don't try to get him to do all the hard work ;)

As such applied to the togreg branch of iio.git. Will be pushed out as testing for
the autobuilders to play with it.

Note there will be some weeks before I push this out as togreg (given merge window
is about to open) so plenty of time for others to take a look!
