  ALS function lost after suspend/resume

Status in OEM Priority Project:
Status in iio-sensor-proxy package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in iio-sensor-proxy source package in Focal:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:

   * Some Dell machine support ALS (ambient light sensor) will lost function after suspend/resume
     It originally only report iio-buffer-als by udev rule, but the buffer no longer update after
     suspend/resume, the issue can be eliminated by polling in_illuminance_raw node.

  [Test Plan]

   * Boot a machine with ALS support, and check it by
     $ cat /sys/bus/iio/devices/iio:device*/name => see if it contains name als
   * do suspend/stress by
     $ sudo -s
     # for i in `seq 20`; do sleep 5; rtcwake -m mem -s 10; done
   * run monitor-sensor and cover your hand on the light sensor
     $ monitor-sensor
   * if the als function lost, there should be no update of the ambient light sensor anymore

  [Where problems could occur]

   * The change add in_illuminance_raw check and add iio-poll-als to
  IIO_SENSOR_PROXY_TYPE for sensor using raw value.

   * It will keep original IIO_SENSOR_PROXY_TYPE and multiple
  IIO_SENSOR_PROXY_TYPE support, so risk is low for other hardware.

   * Checking on working hardware and run $ monitor-sensor
     it should keep popping Light changed event no matter what operations,
     close lid, suspend/resume, reboot...etc.

  [Other Info]

   * The change is from upstream which has been in groovy and hirsute.
