Well, it might be notified via GPIO.  Try to read GPIO pins except for
GPIO0.  That is, set the all unmasked, the direction to READ.

   hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 GPIO_SET_MASK 0x3f
   hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 GPIO_SET_DIR 0x01

Then read the values before and after the jack plug / unplug:

   hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 GPIO_GET_DATA 0
