It is a bug you will only see if you attempt to bring up two iio devices
with event interfaces at the same time. I've no idea if anyone has a, non-dev
board where this is happening. If you trigger the bug the second devices probe
will fail. So moderately horrible but the problem is fairly self contained.

By the look of it two people have run into the bug (or spotted the problem during
code review?) so probably worth pushing the fix in sooner rather than later.

Thanks,

Jonathan
