I've already sent a v2 to change the snd_jack_new() function, feel free
to ignore that. I also saw now that the same bug is present in hda_jack.c,
but I think the other drivers are fine.

How about this approach below? That should also make it possible to
use the jack APIs without using a error return.

Or another idea: if we pass private_{data,free} into snd_jack_new()
as arguments, the snd_jack structure can become private to
sound/core/jack.c, so we can be sure to never hit this bug
again.
