Thanks for the patch.  Works better than before but not there yet.

should switch to headphones and automute the speakers, but you have to
manually select internal mic or headset mic in Gnome's sound preferences
(or pavucontrol).

headphone: works as expected.

headset: I see the option to select Headset Microphone in pavucontrol,
however selecting headset microphone yield silence and not the recording
of the headset.

I suspect my headset is OMTP. It is branded Nokia, came with a cheap
pre-paid phone 2-3 years ago. Works with my Chinese imported no-name
Android phone and works with the SONY Vaio Pro 13 in Windows. No luck in
Linux yet.

with headset connected and input set to Headset Microphone.
