This is a WARN_ON() to catch the inconsistent hw_params call.
This shouldn't happen in theory, but the reality looks weirder.

The necessary "fix" is just to get rid of snd_BUG_ON(), but still
wonder which condition it hits.  If it's an empty parameter, the
previous snd_pcm_hw_refine() should have caught and returned the error

In anyway this can't be a real crash, let's remove the warning to stop
the chorus of syzbot birds.

Subject: [PATCH] ALSA: pcm: Remove WARN_ON() at snd_pcm_hw_params() error

snd_pcm_hw_params() may hit WARN_ON() when an inconsistent parameter
set is passed.  Although this should have been caught by the former
snd_pcm_hw_refine() and returned the error, syzkaller succeeded to
pass through and hit the WARN_ON(), which in turn made it panic

For reducing this kind of noise, let's drop snd_BUG_ON() check.
