This isn't ideal for multi-function jacks like headsets - it will report
a single boolean value for the jack regardless of what's plugged in
meaning userpace can't do things like figure out if a headset or
headphone is present.  It's probably OK for any realistic input button
since you're not going to get an input button without other things being

What I'd expect to happen here is that for multi function jacks we
create a control per function if the controls are valid.
