With USE_EXPAND in portage-2.1* you get the following output for for example VIDEO_CARD and INPUT_DEVICES:

betelgeuse@pena /usr/portage/media-sound/alsa-driver $ emerge -pv xorg-x11

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

It would be nice to have the same listing for ALSA_CARDS. This can be done by adding the drivers in the form alsa_cards_driver to IUSE and ALSA_CARDS to USE_EXPAND in profiles/make.defaults.

Not feasible right now, as ALSA_CARDS is not used as a collection of useflags, but it's used as a variable by itself.
