I started to write a documentation patch for alsa-lib to address this
concern, but I think the current documentation might already be good
enough: "If JackHWMute is set, it indicates that when the jack is
plugged in, the hardware automatically mutes some other device." If the
other device is muted, it's natural to assume that the other device will
stay silent regardless of its own jack status.
