Well, I have already fixed that last week, see:
Did I forget to mention that on the list? I so, then same on me. It's a
waste of time solving the same issues the same way separately!
Perhaps take a look at the tree so we avoid such a mix-up next time!
The commits to have USB gadget properly working are there too, along
with some other things as I explained in my message on the thread
"Replicant 4.2 upstream status" from the 3rd of May.
Since then, I've also worked on better headphones/headset/button
detection. Getting a raw value from twl4030 seems to provide reliably
constant values (without it, the threshold between mic/nomic was
sometimes ~700 and sometimes ~300).
On the user-space side, headset detection is now fully working and I've
corrected the configuration for all the scenarios as well (currently,
only earpiece/speaker/headphones/headset are supported for output and
main mic/headset mic for input, that is, no bluetooth yet).

I agree and came to the same conclusion.
