OK, sorry, I haven't realized its important.

The patch below adds input_enable_device() and input_disable_device()

an ALSA tree that needs an ability to disable the pcspkr driver.

Why eat an entire word here? It seems we already have a "dynalloc" boolean/int... perhaps some of these things could be rolled up into a bitfield.
