Hm. I start to no longer understand how this LIS302 is configured at all
and what SENSORS_LIS3LV02D is good for.

I just noticed while preparing some other driver/misc that there is no
description in the drivers/misc/Kconfig file while all other CONFIGs have some.

But configuring LIS302 works (we have some GTA04 boards where one is installed).

BR and thanks,
Nikolaus
