Sorry for the repost, I relized I stupidly got Greg's email adress wrong 
first time around.

(Sorry about the mangled subject line, I'd accidentally deleted the 
original message from my inbox.)

I'm a bit bewildered here. As the author of the original patch I'm of 
course biased, and I can certainly understand the patch being dropped from 
existing release branches, since as Mark correctly states, it does not fix 
any broken behavior and might even break things that happen to work by 
chance.

But is this being dropped from the master branch as well? To me it makes 
the kernel behave in an inconsistent way, first reporting a failure to 
instantiate a specific sound card in the kernel log, but then seemingly 
bringing it up anyway.
