Subject: [PATCH 4.4 003/143] ASoC: Intel: mrfld: fix uninitialized variable access

4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit 1539c7f23f256120f89f8b9ec53160790bce9ed2 ]

Randconfig testing revealed a very old bug, with gcc-8:

sound/soc/intel/atom/sst/sst_loader.c: In function 'sst_load_fw':
sound/soc/intel/atom/sst/sst_loader.c:357:5: error: 'fw' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Werror=maybe-uninitialized]
  if (fw == NULL) {
     ^
sound/soc/intel/atom/sst/sst_loader.c:354:25: note: 'fw' was declared here
  const struct firmware *fw;

We must check the return code of request_firmware() before we look at the
pointer result that may be uninitialized when the function fails.

Fixes: 9012c9544eea ("ASoC: Intel: mrfld - Add DSP load and management")
