Only detail thing I see is this trivial one:

Does the msleep here need to be inside the mutex lock for the IRQ
case ?

Otherwise it looks good except that the lack of runtime pm means it'll
stop the rest of the bus heirarchy from suspending and breaks
suspend/resume on runtime_pm based systems. I think we still need runtime
pm taking the pm reference on the input open dropping it on the close and
that's about it ? That will be sufficient to let the i2c bus controller
also runtime suspend/resume.

Not so sure about the sysfs drop - but I think its probably the right
thing for upstream and any long term 'we need a fancy driver' would be
via IIO which would sort all the interface problems.
