A lot of the HDA drivers use it and there's a wrapper for ASoC too -
it's fairly likely that if you're running a current kernel your desktop
PC will support this interface already.  Searching the kernel source for
snd_jack_new() should turn up everything there is at the minute.

Yes, the jacks currently appear as input devices to applications.
Takashi was also considering adding some ALSA-specific ways of reading
the state to go alongside these.
