Yeah, pretty much the chip can run an impedance measurement on
either the left or the right headphone pin and to complicate
things a little further you don't necessarily have to wire that
to the actual headphones in hardware. So people tend to wire
up all sorts of odd things that they thought sounded awesome. So
you do really need a way to inform the driver which pin is
actually going to be useful for measuring the headphone impedance
on a specific system.

In an ideal world we would just measure both and take the
average, but in practice it is very dependent on how the hardware
is wired up.
