Has Android been fixed to use the ALSA/input layer interfaces? That's
why that code is there, long term the goal was to have ALSA generate
extcon events too so userspace could fall over to using that. The basic
thing at the time was that nobody liked any of the existing interfaces
(the input layer thing is a total bodge stemming from it having been
easy to hack in a key for GPIO detection and using ALSA controls means
having to link against alsa-lib which is an awful faff for system level
UI stuff) and there were three separate userspace interfaces used by
different software stacks which needed to be joined together, extcon was
felt to be a bit more designed and is a superset so that was the
direction we were heading in.
