It seems that the driver worked casually in the earlier versions :)
Does the patch below fix your problem?
Note that the "Headphone" control will still not appear even with this
patch, but these two outputs are controlled by "Front" and "Surround"
controls. The lack of "Headphone" is no regression but simply it
shouldn't have been there.
I'll work on 2.6.38 tree for better handling of multi headphone

Subject: [PATCH] ALSA: hda - Fix multi-headphone handling for Realtek codecs
When multiple headphone pins are defined without line-out pins, the
driver takes them as primary outputs. But it forgot to set line_out_type
to HP by assuming there is some rest of HP pins. This results in some
mis-handling of these pins for Realtek codec parser. It takes as if
these are pure line-out jacks.
