Subject: [PATCH] ASoC: core: Fix use-after-free after deferred card registration

If snd_soc_register_card() fails because one of its links fails
to instantiate with -EPROBE_DEFER, and the to-be-registered link
is a legacy link, a subsequent retry will trigger a use-after-free
and quite often a system crash.

BUG: KASAN: use-after-free in snd_soc_init_platform+0x233/0x312
Read of size 8 at addr ffff888067c43070 by task kworker/1:1/23

snd_soc_init_platform() allocates memory attached to the card device.
This memory is released when the card device is released. However,
the pointer to the memory (dai_link->platforms) is only cleared from
soc_cleanup_platform(), which is called from soc_cleanup_card_resources(),
but not if snd_soc_register_card() fails early.

Add the missing call to soc_cleanup_platform() in the error handling
code of snd_soc_register_card() to fix the problem.
