From: Jonathan Cameron <Jonathan.Cameron@huawei.com>

One of a class of bugs pointed out by Lars in a recent review.
iio_push_to_buffers_with_timestamp assumes the buffer used is aligned
to the size of the timestamp (8 bytes).  This is not guaranteed in
this driver which uses a 16 byte array of smaller elements on the stack.
As Lars also noted this anti pattern can involve a leak of data to
userspace and that indeed can happen here.  We close both issues by
moving to a suitable structure in the iio_priv().
This data is allocated with kzalloc so no data can leak appart
from previous readings.

Fixes: 06ad7ea10e2b ("max44000: Initial triggered buffer support")
Reported-by: Lars-Peter Clausen <lars@metafoo.de>
