Upon upgrading to 2.6.37,
auto-muting-laptop-speakers-on-headphone-connect stopped working, and
the headphone connector completely disappeared from alsamixer as well
as the pulseaudio volume control panel. The headphone jack was still
transmitting sound, though.

I bisected the problem, with 'good' being v2.6.36, and found the
commit below as the first bad commit. Reverting it on v2.6.37 fixes
the problem. I also tried the latest alsa-kernel master git tree,
which had the same problem.

alsa-info when 'good':


alsa-info when 'bad':


Note: both were taken without X running, before pulseaudio came up.

    ALSA: hda - Clear left-over hp_pins in snd_hda_parse_pin_def_config()

    In snd_hda_parse_def_config(), some unused values may remain in hp_pins[]
    array during the headphone-reassignment workaround.  This patch clears
    the unused array members.
