Subject: [PATCH] iio: accell: mma8452: free iio trigger pointer when cleanup

When mma8452 is built as module, once it is insmod and rmmod, below
kernel dump will show out, the root cause is module being put twice
if iio trigger pointer is NOT NULL, this patch frees iio trigger
pointer after iio trigger is unregistered to avoid below kernel
