[PATCH 1/1] ALSA: hdsp: Deletion of an unnecessary check before the function call "release_firmware"

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

This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.
