I no longer see the warning message with your patch. Thanks!

Yes. It's a muxed port.
The can directly output via integrated Intel GPU when SG is enabled.
The discrete audio controller never gets used when SG is enabled.

The unused discrete audio controller still gets opened by userspace:
# lsof /dev/snd/controlC1
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME
pulseaudi 965 gdm 18u CHR 116,2 0t0 17913 /dev/snd/controlC1
pulseaudi 1423 u 17u CHR 116,2 0t0 17913 /dev/snd/controlC1
pulseaudi 1423 u 24u CHR 116,2 0t0 17913 /dev/snd/controlC1

Also pcms:
# ls /dev/snd/pcmC1*
/dev/snd/pcmC1D10p /dev/snd/pcmC1D11p /dev/snd/pcmC1D3p
/dev/snd/pcmC1D7p /dev/snd/pcmC1D8p /dev/snd/pcmC1D9p

So I think my patch is still needed.
