 I don't think so; original clamshell iBooks don't have an AWACS.
 The codec in the clamshell iBooks is a "Micronas-Intermetall DAC
 3550A" (Apple calls it a "Daca") and it's attached to the controller
 via an I2S bus.  Control commands can be issued to the codec via the
 ki2c I2C bus.
 The code for the I2S bus as well as the DMA transfers can be the same
 as in the snapper(4) driver, but this does not apply to the GPIO code
 which is snapper specific.
 A datasheet is available here: <>
 In the iBooks only speaker or headphones may be active at one moment.
 Speaker is "activated" by enabling the "invert right power amplifier"
 bit in GCFG; to use the headphones jack the bit needs to be
 Headphone presence is checked in extint-gpio12 (IOBase + 0x64) via bit
 0x02. It should produce an interrupt on IRQ 58. This info is available
 on the "gpio" OF node as well as in the "sound-objects" property of
 the "sound" node.
 Hope that helps.
