Subject[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 124/144] iio: imu: Use iio_trigger_get for indio_dev->trig assignment
3.16.7-ckt10 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Darshana Padmadas <>

commit 4ce7ca89d6e8eae9e201cd0e972ba323f33e2fb4 upstream.

This patch uses iio_trigger_get to increment the reference
count of trigger device, to avoid incorrect assignment.
Can result in a null pointer dereference during removal if the
trigger has been changed before removal.

This patch refers to a similar situation encountered through the
following discussion:
