This must be a spurious WARN_ON() when a slave timer is used while the
master is freed.

I'm going to queue the patch below.

#syz fix: ALSA: seq: Remove spurious WARN_ON() at timer check

Subject: [PATCH] ALSA: seq: Remove spurious WARN_ON() at timer check

The use of snd_BUG_ON() in ALSA sequencer timer may lead to a spurious
WARN_ON() when a slave timer is deployed as its backend and a
corresponding master timer stops meanwhile.  The symptom was triggered
by syzkaller spontaneously.

Since the NULL timer is valid there, rip off snd_BUG_ON().
