I've found it is a little difficult to get proper pincfg values. The
original patch builds  'input/output path' manually, the new way does
it automatically as long as providing proper pincfgs for 'end points'.

I tried to copy related pincfgs from a workable lemote a1004
laptop(kernel with the original patch, read from
/proc/asound/card0/codec#0), didn't help much.

I guess the pincfgs are not correct, and on the platform, the pincfgs
are not touched by BIOS, so I have to calculate proper pincfgs, how?

HDA spec explains a pincfg as four bytes. For each byte, it has bits
indicate amp/in/out/vref/ept.

In the kernel side, it reads a pincfg and explains it as a 32bits
flag, indicating

Why they differ? How to get proper pincfg values?
