Fair enough, then it should at least be renamed to something generic
like current-sense-amplifier, as you said lots of circuits do this, not
just lt6106s. We will have then have support for:

current-sense-amplifier
current-sense-shunt
voltage-divider

compatibles in this driver called "unit-converter" which is still a
misnomer IMHO.
