Hi Rob,

Thanks for reviewing.

I hope I don't miss your point here... However, if I correctly
understand it:
Yes, this can be one way to get interrupt(s) directly from consumer
node. Then, I understand consumer has to do exact same as what is being
done in "iio_interrupt_trigger" for instance, basically:
- request irq, alloc and register trigger, do irq handling to call
trigger poll routine.

With current patchset, consumer is able to use standard trigger like
"interrupt-trigger" from DT. Please note I propose to add OF support
for it in current patchset (e.g. PATCHs 2 & 3). Currently only platform
data is supported.

-> And, please refer to PATCHs 5 & 6, I need to have some way to
identify interrupt line (connected in HW to STM32 ADC IP). Currently,
this is best I came up with, trying to re-use, be generic, and to
describe this HW in DT.

Of course, the other way is still valid. Also, I want to highlight,
STM32 has other IP, e.g. DAC, where same can be re-used then. This
will avoid having duplicates.

Purpose is to be able to get one or more named trigger(s) on consumer
side. Idea is to adopt similar 'philosophy' as in other bindings like
pinctrl, clk... where consumer has possibility to get them by name.
I hope this clarifies.

Please advise,
Best Regards,
Fabrice
