[pulseaudio-discuss] [RFC] Should we set Front=0dB for the headphone path?

I wonder if we're better off with the attached patch. I've seen more 
than one system where the volume control named "Front" is a part of 
audio path for headphones. The attached patch would be somewhat of a 
compromise: While we don't merge it into the path, as that would be 
regressing machines where "Front" isn't a part of the audio path, it 
would still enable sound on these machines. The question is if "Front" 
is turning on some output it shouldn't on some machines, but I think it 
wouldn't: this should (for all common systems I can think of) be fixed 
through the driver's auto-mute anyway.

The other option would be to quirk every single machine that has this 
problem to a separate udev rule -> profile-set -> path .conf file.
What do you think?
