[PATCH 2/2] iio: event: NULL-ify IIO device's event_interface ref during unregister

From: Alexandru Ardelean
Date: Fri Sep 18 2020 - 06:33:04 EST

Though we know that the iio_device_unregister_eventset() call is followed
by the free-ing of the IIO device object, we should not make this
assumption in the iio_device_unregister_eventset() function. It should
allow for the clean unregistering of the event-set, allowing a re-register
should we decide to implement this at some point later.
