- No one else has tested it, so I think if it stays in staging, others
have the possibility to test it.
- It has checkpatch issues
- Odd stuff like the AD_CHK(_ss) macro
- I'm not sure to which subsystem it should be added (maybe industrial
io, but this is still staging. Any suggestions?)
- Improvements of code on protocol hierarchy needed (e.g. shutdown
device commands in remove function; it is not obvious which sample
rate the device uses)
