Thanks, applied, after doing a bunch of changes:

     - Remove changelog from the commit log.
     - Rename init script to S99iiod instead of S99iiod.sh
     - Remove "status" command from init script, and implement "restart"
     - Add dependency on thread support in toolchain.
     - Fixup indentation in the .mk file.
     - Fixup wrapping in the Config.in help text.]

Also, if you don't have any /sys/bus/iio/devices directory, the iiod
daemon doesn't start, with a mysterious "Unable to create context"
message, which only appears if you start iiod manually (not from the
init script). Maybe it should be improved a bit: make sure to have a
proper error message, and make sure it gets shown when iiod is started
from the init script.
