[PATCH] ASoC: dpcm: Make BE prepare possible in suspend state

During suspend/resume, there is a flow that if a driver does not support
SNDRV_PCM_INFO_RESUME, it will fail at snd_pcm_resume(), and user space
can then issue SNDRV_PCM_IOCTL_PREPARE to let audio continue to play.

However, in dpcm_be_dai_prepare() it only allows BEs to be prepared
The BE state will then stay in SND_SOC_DPCM_STATE_SUSPEND, consequently
dpcm_be_dai_shutdown() is skipped in the end of playback and
be_substream->runtime is not cleared while this runtime is actually freed
by snd_pcm_detach_substream(). If another suspend comes, a NULL pointer
dereference will happen in snd_pcm_suspend() when accessing
BE substream's runtime.
