Sorry, I was unclear. I don't know if this is a regression. I can try
going back to an older kernel to see if the /dev/iio:device* files
produced any output.

Yes, the *raw* files in sysfs are producing output, that is changing
as I move the laptop around. But the /dev/ nodes seem to produce no
output (I'm still reading through the driver code to understand where
that data should be coming from.

Ok, I will try this, as well.
