First, the hardware has to detect insertion. Then, it has to send a
signal to the driver (either via a status register or an interrupt).
Assuming you have all that (I've never seen a sound card that provides
this info), perhaps you can specify the output jack only when something
is plugged in? That is, you register the output jack when something is
plugged in, and then deregister it when something is removed.
