Will do...

I don't know -- I made it work by trial and error (I don't have access to any 
hardware specs or the likes). By some more trial and error, I could minimize 
the patch some more - it's down to editing the init_verbs and mixers.
In the mixers, this one seems to be the key:
HDA_BIND_MUTE("Master Playback Switch", 0x0c, 2, HDA_INPUT)

Maybe we can get it to work with both MD2 and WIM2160 by using the MD2 mixers 
with this one added.

I'm not familiar enough with sound drivers in general to fiddle with the verbs 
and be reasonably sure I'm not breaking the MD2.
