Subject: [PATCH] iio: magnetometer: ak8974: Fix negative raw values in sysfs
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit
commit b500c086e4110829a308c23e83a7cdc65b26228a upstream.
At the moment, reading from in_magn_*_raw in sysfs tends to return
large values around 65000, even though the output of ak8974 is actually
limited to ±32768. This happens because the value is never converted
to the signed 16-bit integer variant.
Add an explicit cast to s16 to fix this.
