Also note, that by not testing this change it caused build failures because:
1) The config get adjusted to no longer build snd-sof-intel-bdw, including
   this change in a config update patch also clarifies that this is what is
   meant to happen. This part does not cause the build to fail but it will
   delay creating a kernel for the cycle. Here it is a problem because without
   going into details it is unclear which of the two drivers should be kept.
2) The module _must_ be removed from the ABI modules list, otherwise the
   build will fail (this change can go with the config update). The annoying
   part here is that this happens rather late in the build process, so one
   can loose a lot of time.

For now I added this change but it could happen that patches causing build
failures just get unapplied and will miss a cycle.
