Jack sensing is not really ready in the drivers yet. While many HDA
drivers now support a jack sensing API via the Linux input subsystem PA
does not make use of this and is unliekyl to anytime soon as most folks
agree that misusing the input subsystem for jack sensing is a bad idea
and a different solution should be sought. (Most likely based on the
alsa control interface, see recent alsa-devel discussions about
that). But that isn't upstream in neither ALSA nor PA.
So, it might sound easy, but actually isn't.
