Using your dumped config and page 42, your
front mic pin complex is at node 19h; the mixers connecting to it are
at nodes 0Bh, 22h and 23h, all at the second input index, so one of
these should work:

# ./hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0x0b SET_AMP_GAIN_MUTE 0x7280
# ./hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0x22 SET_AMP_GAIN_MUTE 0x7280
# ./hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0x23 SET_AMP_GAIN_MUTE 0x7280

On my ALC883, we need to mute the first input instead, thus 0x7180.
Can you see if the above helps you out?
