This is v2, comparing to v1, I add SRU justification template here.

This patch is only for Artful and OEM kernel.

This patch is in v4.14-rc, so it will be in the Bionic kernel automatically.

Neither Xenial kernel nor Zesty kernel supports alc274 well yet, they lack lots
of functions like setting coefficient for eapd, headset mode, mic_in mode, ctia
and omtp mode. So only applying this patch is not sufficient to fix this bug.

There is a headset jack on this machine, after plugging the headset, the
headset-mic can't be detected, as a result we can't record sound with this

[Test Case]
plugging the headset and checking the sound-setting to verify the headset-mic
shows up. And recording sound with this mic, it works well.

adding the pin definition to quirk table, then this machine will be applied

[Regression Potential]
No, it does not change any existing functions.
