ASoC: Intel: Skylake: Delete an unnecessary check before the function call “release_firmware”

Author: Markus Elfring <>

The release_firmware() 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.
