[PATCH 2/4] ivi-controller: wait clients before freeing ivilayer

We have to wait before freeing ivilayer that all clients destroy
their proxies. Otherwise, a client could send an event to the ivilayer
just after we destroyed it. This would cause a race condition and
potentially SEGV.

Furthermore, the layout_layer pointer of ivilayer set to NULL after
ivilayer freed in the old implementation. Therefore, old implementation
writes 4 bytes to invalid location. This implementation also solves the
invalid write problem by moving the free code.
