Headset is detected in our andorid device by using a detect gpio
 which is turned on when headset is inserted.If the headset
 is inserted right from very beginging i.e. before device is even
 turned on then we forcefully call the handler and thereby in
 handler we check if gpio is turned on or not and do the rest
of things.

Does not linux have any other way of doing this which i may
be missing? How this is handled in the case of ALSA jack i.e.
the jack drivers which is using alsa framework for detection?
Android doesn't use ALSA framework for reporting JACK.
