[PATCH 4.14 36/94] iio:accel:mma7455: Fix timestamp alignment and prevent data leak.

commit 7e5ac1f2206eda414f90c698fe1820dee873394d 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 a 16 byte u8 array 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 with alignment
ensured by use of an explicit c structure. This data is allocated
with kzalloc so no data can leak appart from previous readings.

The force alignment of ts is not strictly necessary in this particularly
case but does make the code less fragile.
