Good to hear.  What's the remaining issue?

The current parser prefers the line-out as the primary output over the
headphone.  Then it tries to assign from the smaller NID, so 0x0c is
assigned to the line-out (which is the speaker in your case), then
0x0d is to the headphone.

Do you mean that the noise is there with rerouting like the above, or
you are asking for a patch to achieve the rerouting?
