Bug Description

Hewlett-Packard HP Envy 14 1095la
Hardware: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/druellan/hpenvy1095la

Using headphones and keyboard shortcuts to control the volume slider, something is not right when the volume is close to mute.

What I spect:
Volume to raise smoothly from mute to max

What I get:
Volume suddenly rises to 15% at the second or third "step" of the volume slider.

Using keyboard shortcuts, rise volume to max and then to the minimun (muted).
Then slowly start to rise. Alsamixer shows:

0: master 0 | headphone 68 | pcm 0 -- muted
1: master 16 | headphone 0 | pcm 100 -- muted
2: master 16 | headphone 0 | pcm 100 -- muted
3: master 18 | headphone 100 | pcm 100 -- volume ~15%
