Not really problem with this specific patch, but anyway, I saw
analog-output.conf.common, and I didn't find any explanation for the
jack state directives (they are completely new to me).
analog-output.conf.common needs updating.

Otherwise looks good to me. The mostly copy-pasted profile-set files
aren't very cool, though, but I don't have any good solution for it
right now. One question: is it possible to see somehow (from log or with
pactl) which profile-set is being used by a card? I was recently bitten
by the extra-hdmi profile-set: I adviced a user to modify default.conf,
when actually extra-hdmi.conf was being used.
