This would break if INPUT=m and SND_HDA_CODEC_REALTEK=y.
Usually, we take a trick like

depends on INPUT=y || INPUT=SND_HDA_CODEC_REALTEK

But, looking at the change that introduced the dependency (commit
33f4acd3b214), the code doesn't necessarily depend on INPUT at all.
The select above was put there just because the random build with
INPUT=m and SND_HDA_CODEC_REALTEK=y would break otherwise.

The right fix in this case would be to replace IS_ENABLE(INPUT) with
IS_REACHABLE(INPUT) instead.


thanks,

Takashi
