ALSA: sb: Delete an unnecessary check before the function call “snd_emux_free”

Author: Markus Elfring <>

The snd_emux_free() function tests whether its argument is NULL and then
returns immediately. Thus the test around the call is not needed.

This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.
