Ooop, I did not realize that it is there as part of sysfs.h. I was
looking for other header to get support for this. I can use this for
proximity only but I think I should go with you other suggestion to
implement this on channel basis. This will help also in future for other
drivers to have different sampling on different channel.

I will send the patch for implementing this first and then modified
version of my driver which actually uses this one.
