[PATCH 4.14 30/94] iio:adc:max1118 Fix alignment of timestamp and data leak issues

commit db8f06d97ec284dc018e2e4890d2e5035fde8630 upstream.

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.
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() data.

This data is allocated with kzalloc so no data can leak apart
from previous readings.

The explicit alignment of ts is necessary to ensure correct padding
on architectures where s64 is only 4 bytes aligned such as x86_32.
