[pulseaudio-discuss] Pulseaudio sends out zeroes to sound card when no client

Hello all,

    I can see that module-detect after loading module-alsa-sink sends out
zeroes to the sound card ( snd_pcm_writei )even when there is no client
attached to the daemon yet ..

Doesnt this consumes CPU cycles unnecessarily..
Can't we do away with this ??

I agree that this feature is available in autoloaded modles but then why
does Pulseaudio has to write zeroes when its module(module-alsa-sink) is
simply loaded using module-detect?
