Jack detection in ubuntu 12.04 - call for testing!

Jack detection - what happens when you plug your headphones in - has 
been improved in kernel 3.3, and I hope we can have that functionality 
in Ubuntu 12.04 as well. It is e g one of the components needed to 
successfully have different volumes for headphones and speakers, and to 
have your media keys controlling your headphone volume when your 
headphones are plugged in, and your speakers when they're not.

However, the kernel team has asked for some specific testing before they 
are willing to merge the new jack detection stuff into the 12.04 Ubuntu 
kernel, and I'm hoping that you would be willing to help us out with 


Do remember, that if you find a kernel regression, that we have a way of 
contacting you, so we can figure out what went wrong and hopefully fix 
the bug.

Thanks in advance!
