Then you can't expect that everything works. For example, the jack
detection is known to be broken if you connect with AC97 panel.
For disabling the jack detection, put "jack_detect = no" to the hint
in the early patching. See Documentation/sound/alsa/HD-audio.txt for
For fixing the rest, the disordered channels, you need to identify
which pin corresponds to which I/O, then remap via pincfg in the early
patching. hda_analyzer and hda-jack-retask would be your help.
