soc_cleanup_component_debugfs will debugfs_remove_recursive
the component->debugfs_root, so adsp doesn't need to also
remove the same entry.
By doing that adsp also creates a race with core component,
which causes a NULL pointer dereference

It might be better not to backport this patch to the stable
kernels. The issue has only been seen on one out of tree driver
and the patch looks a little off to me. This
debugfs_remove_recursive should run before the
soc_cleanup_component_debugfs one, and as such it's hard to see
what is actually going on. We are currently investigating internally
but we might end up reverting the change, and it only seems to be
causing issues on the one not upstreamed part.

Apologies for missing the review of this one when it went up
Mark, I was on holiday at the time.

I'll drop it, it didn't go anywhere yet :) Thanks!
