Python 3.5 changes the StopIteration exception clearing behaviour when
a generator finishes its iteration. This causes the interpreter to
errounously consider SWIG clean-up functions as having "set an error".

This hack explicitly allocates and cleans up struct bt_iter_pos
instead of relying on SWIG auto-generated code which manages
the lifetime of temporary objects.

An investigation of the cause of this change is under way, but at
least this makes the bindings usable on Python 3.5 which is
being rolled-out in some distros.
