Using latest sound-unstable I can confirm that the crashes in XFCE mixer
are gone. Also, labels in alsamixer make more sense now - I have microphone
plugged to the back and previously I had to enable Front Mic as an input
source to for the microphone to work. Now, it works over "Rear Mic" as
expected. Also, multistream playback works with "Independent HP" enabled.
And yes, less controls then before ... Overall, a big improvement.

Does the Mic really work since missing boost control ?

         HDA_CODEC_VOLUME("Front Mic Boost Volume", 0x39, 0x0, HDA_OUTPUT),
       HDA_CODEC_VOLUME("Mic Boost Volume", 0x3c, 0x0, HDA_OUTPUT),
