No, you changed the relative order in which iio_device_unregister() and 
adis_cleanup_buffer_and_trigger() are called, this opens up the way for race 
conditions. Rule of thumb: Don't convert drivers to managed functions if 
this will change the order in which functions will called on device removal.
