This patch will cause regressions in two big use cases:
1) Older chipsets (at least from non-Intel vendors) might not support
correct ELD reporting. Thus this will cause HDMI audio to stop working
2) In PulseAudio's current design, PulseAudio probes the device at
startup and caches the result. Unfortunately, there is no reprobing at
plug/unplug, so if the monitor is hotplugged, it will not work unless
PulseAudio is restarted afterwards.
