Starting with 3.19, the default behavior is to ask the embedded
controller to disable all the magic. The kernel will keep the mute
LED in sync with the software control, the hardware switch is disabled
entirely, and the mute button is just a button.
This mean the function of mute key is disabled by default
Speaker still follow pin sense of hp and dock hp of hda codec when auto
mute mode is enabled
Simple mixer control 'Auto-Mute Mode',0
Items: 'Disabled' 'Enabled'
You need to find out how to listen mute key event
