Actually, change of plan. Applied to the togreg branch of that
tree. Whilst technically more correct to have it as you say,
we are dealing with the size of a struct iio_trig ** vs
a struct iio_trig * so it isn't actually a bug, just a
less than ideal bit of code ;)

It was so obviously a fix I didn't initially check if it
was a 'real' bug or not. oops.
