I've made a new patch, against 2.2.15, for the PC speaker driver. It's at said:

I applied the 2.2.13 patch against a clean 2.2.15 kernel, and all that
failed was the patch to joystick.c. Slackware must have changed something
else which caused the conflicts. said:

This is what we already do, although the numbers are different. I've heard
that this is what Linus objects to, and hence the reason why it hasn't
been incorporated yet. I've not actually had that confirmed by Linus,
