Subject[PATCH v8 01/14] iio: inkern: apply consumer scale on IIO_VAL_INT cases
From: Liam Beguin <>

When a consumer calls iio_read_channel_processed() and the channel has
an integer scale, the scale channel scale is applied and the processed
value is returned as expected.

On the other hand, if the consumer calls iio_convert_raw_to_processed()
the scaling factor requested by the consumer is not applied.

This for example causes the consumer to process mV when expecting uV.
Make sure to always apply the scaling factor requested by the consumer.

Fixes: 48e44ce0f881 ("iio:inkern: Add function to read the processed value")
