Fairly sure you just dropped a lot or precision if the devices do provide
a scale.

iio_read_channel_processed() provides a IIO_VAL_INT as you can see.
Now that can be heavily truncated. In some cases it is always 0
(e.g. device reading very small currents only).

To maintain that scaling we deliberately combine it with the
scaling from the afe, hopefully maintaining that precision because
the scale value has much higher degree of precision.

We could probably do this better than currently with a more complex
conversion function.

It might seem like a good idea to fix up iio_read_channel_processed
to return IIO_VAL_INT_PLUS_MICRO or similar, but potentially that
would still throw away precision, for example if the scale is
expressed as IIO_VAL_FRACTIONAL to a high degree of precision.
