I don't know, but there might be
someone who wants the PCM support
from pc-speaker, and hates the beeps
at the same time. So they can disable
it forever. :)
I also want to resolve the conflict
with INPUT_PCSPKR somehow. Making the
input part of snd-pcsp optional looks
like the first step to me. It became
known to me that loading multiple
drivers for the same device will be
possible in the future. I want to get
everything ready for loading pcspkr
and snd-pcsp together.
And overall, having snd-pcsp to depend
on CONFIG_INPUT only because it can do
a console beeps as a bonus, looks ill-
behaved to me. So I just propose that
patch as a small logical correction
and cleanup, rather than a new feature.
