Ah, now I see.

Then, a much better solution is to check which mixer settings
are available than making it depend on presence of some obscure gpio.

The best idea is to check if hw voice routing controls are available.
Then hw routing can be used.

amixer controls | fgrep ...

But I am not sure if our kernel properly hides them on the GTA04A3 board
which does not support hw voice routing... Or if it presents a dead

So the second best strategy is to

case "$(cat /proc/device-tree/model)" in
	*GTA04A[1-3]* ) do something;;
	*GTA04A[4-9]* ) do something else;;
