I like the idea of enabling triggers to set triggers, but I'd love to see something more generic. I've got the problem of trying to add some state control to IIO triggers to reduce userspace intractions, preferably without requiring users to create kernel drivers.

To provide a more generic state machine, would injecting something like BPF to connect triggers be better?
