SubjectPATCH for 2.4.0: assign ad1848 mixer operations to correct module
Date
Hi,

This patch fixes a problem that I was having with the ENSONIQ
SoundScape mixer: basically, the mixer device was owned by the ad1848
module but was being deallocated when the sscape module was
unloaded. This patch hands the mixer device to the sscape module
instead so that the sscape module -cannot- be unloaded while the mixer
is in use.

BTW Isn't it ever-so-slightly dodgy modifying the static
ad1848_mixer_operations structure like this? I have modified the mixer
operations in exactly the same way as the ad1848_audio_driver
structure, but doesn't this mean that the ad1848_init() function now
"remembers" the owner from the previous call?

Maybe a better patch would be:

Or maybe the sound_install_XXXX() functions should accept "owner"
parameters, so that the static structs could become "const"?
Cheers,
