[alsa-devel] [PATCH] ASoC: Intel: Cancel hsw_notification_work before freeing the stream

I suppose there is a possibility that hsw_notification_work() may run after
sst_hsw_stream_free() which can lead to a kernel crash since struct
sst_hsw_stream is freed at that point and
stream = container_of(work, struct sst_hsw_stream, notify_work) is not valid
when hsw_notification_work() is run.

Untested, I don't have at the moment Haswell to test this and Liam hasn't
seen this patch yet so ack/tested-by from him might be good to have :-)
