Subject: [PATCH] soundwire: fix error handling

From: Tom Rix <trix@...hat.com>

clang static analysis flags this problem

stream.c:844:9: warning: Use of memory after
  it is freed
        kfree(bus->defer_msg.msg->buf);
              ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This happens in an error handler cleaning up memory
allocated for elements in a list.

	list_for_each_entry(m_rt, &stream->master_list, stream_node) {
		bus = m_rt->bus;

		kfree(bus->defer_msg.msg->buf);
		kfree(bus->defer_msg.msg);
	}

And is triggered when the call to sdw_bank_switch() fails.
There are a two problems.

First, when sdw_bank_switch() fails, though it frees memory it
does not clear bus's reference 'defer_msg.msg' to that memory.

The second problem is the freeing msg->buf. In some cases
msg will be NULL so this will dereference a null pointer.
Need to check before freeing.

Fixes: 99b8a5d608a6 ("soundwire: Add bank switch routine")
