Hm... Somebody of my colleguas explains me that windows blind as a beetle.
It asks user what the real device he attached. I'm thinking about callback
for ALSA to produce analogue way.

Of course, you proposed logical way: the Front Volume may be called
as Master due to HP and speakers are used the same node (physical volume
control device). However, the all devices based on ALC883 don't have 'Headphone'
or 'Master' volume control in the code.
