While I tend to agree with this, in embedded systems this might (not
certainly) cause issues. Embedded SW (middleware, high level) tends to take
the underlaying HW as static.
Before I can do the dynamic input device creation/destruction I need to make
sure that the userspace is ready for this.
I'm planning to address your concern regarding to twl6040, and at the same
time I'm going to change the twl4030 vibra/MFD/audio driver to behave in a
same way.
