These names are going to get pretty verbose very easily.  Might it be
worth putting some of this (and also other information like colour) into
TLV information rather than part of the base jack name?  So long as we
can extract a name for the jack itself (which is probably the location
in your example above) I think we're fine.

I think the main thing is to clean up this mess for 3.4 so we don't get
too many confused userspaces out there.
