On that I'm not sure - is there a standard way of configuring wake up events
outside of IIO?

Yes, if a device is providing a _raw channel reading then threshold
values should also be raw.

Available sysfs attribute makes sense if it helps a user, or userspace
program to set the value.

It's not something I've come across before, so hopefully someone else
can provide guidance on this!

My only immediate thought is that perhaps this should be a device tree
thing rather than userspace controlled?
There also seems to be some existing infrastructure to control this
in the power directory for a device.
