Mic Jack Mode, Line Jack Mode, etc
These enum controls the direction and the bias of the input jack pins.
Depending on the jack type, it can set as "Mic In" and "Line In", for
determining the input bias, or it can be set to "Line Out" when the pin is
a multi-I/O jack for surround channels.

the switching from 6ch to 8ch can also be implemented using Line Jack Mode

Simple mixer control 'Line Jack Mode',0
Items: 'Mic In' 'Line In' 'Side Line Out'
Item0: 'Side Line Out'
