I was just thinking the same. I 'think' that it will first try to find
a mapping via device tree and then use the iio_map stuff.
So you can probably get away with a mixture of the two.
Worth testing that works though (hook up iio-hwmon to AIN0 perhaps whilst
also using the iio_map approach).
I might be completely wrong though and am not aware of anyone currently
