Thanks for your work.  It's good to know that the model actually works
somehow indeed.

A few comment about the patch:

- Instead of adding have_dedicated_mic and have_output_switch
  callbacks in every place, I'd put some bit flags indicating the
  capabilities, and set at the initialization appropriately.
- A few easy coding-style issues; run scripts/checkpatch.pl and fix
  the errors appropriately.
