Sounds good to me. I just checked the DT bindings for spi-bus
and max-frequency is indeed a required binding element for slave
devices, hence has to be there.  Best to confirm it is sane in
the driver however as you suggest.  I think we'll standardise
on that bit of paranoia in IIO unless Rob or Mark shouts otherwise.
