Subject: [PATCH v2] ASoC: Intel: avoid Oops if DMA setup fails

Currently in sst_dsp_new() if we get an error return from sst_dma_new()
we just print an error message and then still complete the function
successfully.  This means that we are trying to run without sst->dma
properly set up, which will result in NULL pointer dereference when
sst->dma is later used.  This was happening for me in
sst_dsp_dma_get_channel():

        struct sst_dma *dma = dsp->dma;
	...
        dma->ch = dma_request_channel(mask, dma_chan_filter, dsp);

This resulted in:

   BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000018
   IP: sst_dsp_dma_get_channel+0x4f/0x125 [snd_soc_sst_firmware]

Fix this by adding proper error handling for the case where we fail to
set up DMA.

This change only affects Haswell and Broadwell systems.  Baytrail
systems explicilty opt-out of DMA via sst->pdata->resindex_dma_base
being set to -1.

Changes in v2:
 - Upgraded the sst_dma_new() failure message from dev_warn() to dev_err()
   (Pierre-Louis).
 - Noted in the changelog that this change only affects Haswell and
   Broadwell (Pierre-Louis).
