The binding has been around for ages I have been working through
updating it to actually include more of the functionality of the
driver. The last set of changes where some initial work on the
jack detection, this is a fairly self contained update that
doesn't really relate to the jack detection.

Its a fairly complex part so there is going to be quite a lot to
the binding. I have basically been upstreaming them as much as
possible in groups of similar functionality, as I have time to
work on them. I could try save the changes up out of tree and
collect together into much larger chains, if you felt strongly
about it? But I am not really clear that helps much. As I have to
hang on to much more out of tree code, people using the part have
to wait longer to have access to useful bindings in mainline and
it makes the CC lists much longer so everyone needs to look at
more email than they need to.

Position in the array (ie. first entry is the first output, and
so on). I will respin to update the comment to make this more
