Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.9 21/50] iio: trigger: free trigger resource
 correctly

From: Alison Schofield <amsfield22@...il.com>

[ Upstream commit 10e840dfb0b7fc345082dd9e5fff3c1c02e7690e ]

These stand-alone trigger drivers were using iio_trigger_put()
where they should have been using iio_trigger_free().  The
iio_trigger_put() adds a module_put which is bad since they
never did a module_get.

In the sysfs driver, module_get/put's are used as triggers are
added & removed. This extra module_put() occurs on an error path
in the probe routine (probably rare).

In the bfin-timer & interrupt trigger drivers, the module resources
are not explicitly managed, so it's doing a put on something that
was never get'd.  It occurs on the probe error path and on the
remove path (not so rare).

Tested with the sysfs trigger driver.
The bfin & interrupt drivers were build tested & inspected only.
