It doesn't help because your old patch doesn't change the default
pin-configuration values. It changes the pin-control values or amp
values, but not the former one.

Just follow the HD-audio specification :)

No, you are referring to pin control bits. This has nothing to do
with the pin default configuration. You must misunderstand the spec
Read section 184.108.40.206 (page 179) for details.
