Subject: [PATCH] sound/usb: fix null pointer dereference on pointer cs_desc

The pointer cs_desc return from snd_usb_find_clock_source could
be null, so there is a potential null pointer dereference issue.
Fix this by adding a null check before dereference.

Fixes: 9ec73005 ("ALSA: usb-audio: Refactoring UAC2/3 clock setup code")
