No. What we need to do, for all gspca sub-drivers that have optional
support for buttons is to only enable the buttons support if:
CONFIG_INPUT=m and CONFIG_USB_GSPCA_submodule=m
If we use a reverse logic, we need to disable the code if:
# CONFIG_INPUT is not set
CONFIG_INPUT=m and CONFIG_USB_GSPCA_submodule=y
The rationale for disabling the code on the last expression is that a
builtin code cannot call a function inside a module.
Also, as the submodule is already being compiled, we know that
CONFIG_USB_GSPCA_submodule is either module or builtin.
So, either one of those expressions should work:
#if (IS_BUILTIN(CONFIG_INPUT)) || (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_INPUT) && !IS_BUILTIN(CONFIG_USB_GSPCA_submodule))
#if (IS_BUILTIN(CONFIG_INPUT)) || (IS_MODULE(CONFIG_INPUT) && IS_MODULE(CONFIG_USB_GSPCA_submodule) && defined(MODULE))
#if (IS_BUILTIN(CONFIG_INPUT)) || (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_INPUT) && IS_MODULE(CONFIG_USB_GSPCA_submodule))
