Yeah, that's part of why I haven't done it myself yet ;-)

It seems possible that for ALC269 , you could switch path entirely
(including ADC). I e, the internal mic would go 0x12 -> 0x23 -> 0x08 and
the external mic would go 0x18 -> 0x24 -> 0x07. That way you could then
label the volume control on 0x08 "Internal Mic Capture Volume" and
"Inverted Internal Mic Capture Volume".
Do you think this is a good strategy, or would it lead to other problems
(i e, what happens when you plug your mic in while actively recording)?
