This isn't mainline stuff, this is the Android standard switch class.
Someone should really contribute something to Android which backs it
onto the back of ALSA jacks.  The mainline equivalent is extcon which
does have switch class emulation but it's a bit broken in its generation
of uevents and is also not yet integrated into the ALSA jack stuff.

The thing to do is ideally integrate extcon with the ALSA jack code and
update the Android headset observer to work with extcon (or write a
separate extcon based observer).
