You have to use the 'Mixer' ctl with amixer (numid=5).
It takes three parameters: source, destination, and gain
source: 0-25 -> the physical inputs
(on the multiface only 0-17)
26-51 -> the playbacks (software output)
(only 26-43 on the mf)
destination: 0-25 -> physical outputs (mf: 0-17)
26-27 -> line out (phone)
gain: 0-65536 -> 0 is minus infinity, 32768 is 0 dB, 65535 is + 6dB
You can use the following script, equivalent to the 1st hdspmixer
for out_left in $(seq 0 2 25);
amixer cset numid=5 $in_left,$out_left,32768
amixer cset numid=5 $in_left,26,16384
amixer cset numid=5 $in_right,$out_right,32768
amixer cset numid=5 $in_right,27,16384;
