Oooh, looks so dirty :/

Yeah if there is a "cleaner" approach it might be better, or we risk
getting nasty surprises down the road if the destructor is not called
only when we are going to free ev.

If we need to keep doing it I'd suggest renaming the actual destructor
into something like: tevent_common_context_reset() and have a new
tevent_common_context_destructor() calling it. At least it would make it
clear that tevent_common_context_reset() is used by something other than
ev destruction.
