There is no defer issue with the intel stuff, but we call this routine
multiple times




-- soc_soc_bind_card


------ soc_check_tplg_fes

-------- snd_soc_init_platform << ALLOC1


----------snd_soc_init_platform << ALLOC2

Initially dai_link->legacy_platform is 0, so gets set after the first
first devm_kzalloc (ALLOC1) and after that we always allocate new memory
(ALLOC2). The end result is that whatever we set in soc_check_tplg_fes
is lost with the new/unnecessary alloc.

I would guess your solution is also a work-around, if devm_ effectively
freed the memory then the pointer would become NULL. Or may that's the
issue is that no one actually resets it.
