Whilst indio_dev->trig is set to the local trigger at startup,
I'm not seeing the validate callbacks that will be needed to ensure it
is still set to that trigger when you remove the driver.

Specifically validate_trigger callback for all the hid sensor devices.

It is entirely possible that should be set and these devices can only
use the hid sensor trigger, but I don't think it currently is.

Thus this patch is going to cause some interesting crashes.
Note this is the reason all IIO drivers have to carry an extra copy
of the trig pointer.

So you'll have to do something a bit more interesting to pass that
trigger to the relevant devices that share it.

Arguably if they are actually sharing the trigger, then we shouldn't really
have separate IIO devices in the first place as we loose the
connection between the timing of the data across the different channels.
