The error above implies, that twl4030-madc has not been loaded when
twl4030-madc-battery was loaded. This iio_channel_get() fails and
returns -EPROBE_DEFER. This results in twl4030-madc-battery probe
function returning -EPROBE_DEFER. Thus you can simply ignore the
error if the twl4030-madc-battery driver is loaded later.

I guess the easiest way to debug the problem is adding some
dev_dbg() at the start of twl4030_madc_conversion(), which
prints out the entries of twl4030_madc_request. Currently
the IIO API simply calls twl4030_madc_request(), so you
should be able to find out the difference.

Also: Can you post you DTS? I use the following for Nokia N900:

/ {
battery: n900-battery {
compatible = "nokia,n900-battery";
io-channels = <&twl_madc 0>, <&twl_madc 4>, <&twl_madc 12>;
io-channel-names = "temp", "bsi", "vbat";

&twl {
twl_madc: madc {
compatible = "ti,twl4030-madc";
interrupts = <3>;
#io-channel-cells = <1>;
