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 an array of smaller elements on the stack.

We fix this issues by moving to a suitable structure in the iio_priv()
data with alignment explicitly requested.  This data is allocated
with kzalloc so no data can leak apart from previous readings.
Note that previously no data could leak 'including' previous readings
but I don't think it is an issue to potentially leak them like
this now does.

Fixes: 815bbc87462a ("iio: ti-adc0832: add triggered buffer support")
