Ok guys, this is embarrasing. After lots of kernel recompiling, I looked
for other reasons of my silent headset. Looks like it has to do with
the mixer all along, but in an entirely different manner.

$ mixer -f /dev/mixer1     
Mixer pcm      is currently set to  75:75
Mixer mic      is currently set to   0:0
Recording source: mic

This is my normal mixer output for this headset. Strange thing is, that
the 'mic' level functions like a genuine 'vol' level. It affects both
playback and recording, though.

Weird, huh?
