Subject: [PATCH] ALSA: hda/ca0132: work around clang -Wuninitialized warning

When CONFIG_PCI is disabled, clang gets confused about the
control flow of the switch() statement always ending up
in the default case, and warns:

sound/pci/hda/patch_ca0132.c:7558:6: error: variable 'fw_entry' is used uninitialized whenever 'if' condition is false
        if (!spec->alt_firmware_present) {
sound/pci/hda/patch_ca0132.c:7565:42: note: uninitialized use occurs here
        dsp_os_image = (struct dsp_image_seg *)(fw_entry->data);
sound/pci/hda/patch_ca0132.c:7558:2: note: remove the 'if' if its condition is always true
        if (!spec->alt_firmware_present) {
sound/pci/hda/patch_ca0132.c:7521:33: note: initialize the variable 'fw_entry' to silence this warning
        const struct firmware *fw_entry;
                                        = NULL

Adding an explicit check for CONFIG_PCI avoids the issue.
Unfortunately this is not very intuitive here.
