Subject: iio: meter: ade7758: Fix indio_dev->trig assignment

commit 0495081179212b758775df752e657ea71dcae020 upstream.

This can result in wrong reference count for trigger device, call
iio_trigger_get to increment reference.
Refer to http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-iio/msg13669.html for discussion
with Jonathan.
