Most of the time the product string from the usb.ids/pci.ids file is
more useful than the product string from the driver. A few times the
contrary is true.
Since we hardly can come up with an algorithm that automatically
figures out that if both strings are known which one is the nicer,
more useful one we have to statically prefer one over the
other. Naturally I decided to default to the usb.ids/pci.ids string
and use the hw string as fallback. In your case this actually made
You can try to aks the pci.ids db guys to update its string so that it
is nicer to read.
