I will add is_visible. I have almost finished it while waiting for
the v3's review comments. Will test it and include in the v4.

I will also add one separate patch for in[0-*]_enable after these
two changes pass the review and get applied.

I replied this in the PATCH-1. Let's discuss this topic there.

The register has enabled all channels by default. So I felt it'd
be neat to have disabling code only. My v1 actually had enabling
part as well, but I can add it back if you think it'd be better.

I don't quite understand this comments. Would you please elaborate

For non-DT configurations, input->disconnected is always false by
default unless someone adds config for it (through platform_data).
If regmap_update_bits only does disabling like this version does,
non-DT configurations will not get affected since mask = 0. Or if
we change it to do both enabling and disabling, regmap_update_bits
will still ignore since there's no register value changed, though
it won't really hurt even if regmap writes correct configurations
to the register.

For DT configurations (without channel input source defined), it's
like the same as non-DT configurations. As we have platforms only
enabled ina3221 via DT while they don't have this new DT binding,
the driver has to be backward compatible, so my change only sets
input->disconnected=true when a status="disabled" is present, i.e.
those platforms are treated as all channels getting enabled until
they update their DTs.

Thanks for the review
