Thanks for noticing this!

I didn't like all the duplicated code I added to the ISA drivers, and
the more code it becomes, the less I like it.

But it should be possible to avoid this duplication:
snd_mpu401_uart_new() needs to differentiate between three cases:
1) allocate a separate interrupt;
2) do not allocate, use the callback from the driver's interrupt handler;
3) do not allocate, use a timer for polling.
Case 1) is indicated by a valid irq number, the other two cases need
a flag. All drivers that might use polling switch between 1) or 3),
while 2) is always used unconditionally. So if we have this flag for 2)
instead of 3), no additional logic is needed in the drivers.

(Furthermore, snd_mpu401_uart_new() could check for SNDRV_AUTO_IRQ
instead of letting all drivers do this, and the hardware and info_flags
parameters could be merged. But this can wait for later.)


I'll have a new patch until tomorrow.


Regards,
Clemens
