[alsa-devel] RFC: Jack-detection control elements on HD-audio

yet another thing I've worked recently on is a bit more generalized
framework for jack-sense reporting for HD-audio. This supersedes the
existing jack-sense reporting via the input layer. In addition, it
gives the corresponding control elements.
For example, you'll have "Jack HP-Out" (or a bit more verbose like
"Jack HP-Out at Ext Rear") control via control API as well as other
mixer controls. This can notify when a jack is plugged/unplugged.
But, another big win is that you can read the current pin sense just
by reading this element.
I think this is a sort of feature Lennart wanted for PA.
Lennart, does it make sense?
The test codes are already in topic/hda-jack branch on sound-unstable
Any comments appreciated. This is also intended for 2.6.32, not for
2.6.31 merge, of course :)
