Subject[PATCH 3.19 058/101] iio: core: Fix double free.
Date
3.19-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Martin Fuzzey <mfuzzey@parkeon.com>

commit c1b03ab5e886760bdd38c9c7a27af149046ffe01 upstream.

When an error occurred during event registration memory was freed twice
resulting in kernel memory corruption and a crash in unrelated code.

The problem was caused by
iio_device_unregister_eventset()
iio_device_unregister_sysfs()

being called twice, once on the error path and then
again via iio_dev_release().

Fix this by making these two functions idempotent so they
may be called multiple times.

The problem was observed before applying
78b33216 iio:core: Handle error when mask type is not separate
