[PATCH 5.16 0104/1017] ALSA: cs4236: fix an incorrect NULL check on list iterator

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman

From: Xiaomeng Tong <xiam0nd.tong@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 0112f822f8a6d8039c94e0bc9b264d7ffc5d4704 upstream.

The bug is here:
err = snd_card_cs423x_pnp(dev, card->private_data, pdev, cdev);

The list iterator value 'cdev' will *always* be set and non-NULL
by list_for_each_entry(), so it is incorrect to assume that the
iterator value will be NULL if the list is empty or no element
is found.

To fix the bug, use a new variable 'iter' as the list iterator,
while use the original variable 'cdev' as a dedicated pointer
to point to the found element. And snd_card_cs423x_pnp() itself
has NULL check for cdev.
