SubjectRe: [PATCH] for PAS16 functionality for 2.4

That no real problem - it's a 'feature' of the list-style Makefiles unless
a little patch for Rules.make goes in ...

Aehmm. Your Makefile patch looks very strange:

> -obj-$(CONFIG_SOUND_PAS) += pas2.o sb_lib.o uart401.o
> +obj-$(CONFIG_SOUND_PAS) += pas2.o sb.o sb_lib.o uart401.o

Why do you remove sb.o from the object list?
The pas2 driver has no code to use the functions in sb_lib.o -
It has only some code to enable the sb emulation of the pas2 card.
Either you remove both sb.o and sb_lib.o and the pas2 sb emulation is gone,
or you leave it as is. Alternative: you can add code to use the sb_lib.o
stuff directly from the pas2 driver (this is the best solution, IMHO).

Why not - there shouldn't really be an issue with it.
It builds fine for me (and the various distributions kernel rpms).

And I doubt there is any runtime problem with that ...

You can use both - but for pas2 only you don''t have to.

either works well ...
