Thank you, Klaus!

While debugging hangs or crashes during the shutdown of rpihddevice (see 
https://github.com/reufer/rpihddevice/pull/6 for my fixes), I noticed 
that AddressSanitizer (enabled by -fsanitize=address in GCC or clang) 
would report some heap-use-after-free also in
cDvbTuner::Action(), accessing a deleted cSdtFilter.

The attached patch fixes the issues for me. The Cancel(3) call in 
cDevice::~cDevice() is moved to cDevice::Shutdown(), because 
cDevice::~cDevice() would be executed too late, while 
cDvbDevice::~cDvbDevice() had already deleted the objects. 

The Cancel(-1) calls in cDevice::Shutdown() are an optimization to 
reduce the shutdown time on systems when there are multiple devices.

The change to cDvbDevice::~cDvbDevice() is necessary to shut down all 
users of cDvbTuner before it is deleted. Without this last hunk, I would 
still occasionally get heap-use-after-free reports.
