The string for DMI_SYS_VENDOR is empty on some boxes. For example: the
box in bug 14629. This is different with the box in freedesktop bug

Yes. The issue can be fixed by removing the DMI_SYS_VENDOR as you
mentioned. But it will cover all the machines with the DMI_PRODUCT_NAME
of "pc-81005". I am not sure whether this is appropriate.

They are the two different quirks. That means that the following quirk
still exists even after the patch is applied.
