Ok, here are some notes (I used the git branch you provided). First
of all kernel messages contain:

[    4.217163] ALSA: Control name 'TPA6130A2 TPA6130A2 Headphone Playback Volum' truncated to 'TPA6130A2 TPA6130A2 Headphone Playback Volu'

Next here is a amixer output diff:

root@n900:~# amixer > amixer.old (v4.7-rc [without your patches])
root@n900:~# amixer > amixer.new
root@n900:~# diff -u amixer.old amixer.new

If I remember correctly, the reduced playback limit up to 42 is
important on N900, since hardware can be destroyed. It may have been
another control, though. Also the capture channel looks wrong.

Last but not least: Audio output doesn't work, but works on a kernel
without these changes.
