True, yet orthogonal to what I'm saying. As people point potential
mistakes you (perhaps not personally) want to check if those are
genuine or not.
If things are correct, say 67C2:00 is valid, simply mention "yes A/B
is bit unusual, yet it's the correct name".

Those files have many more users than the amdgpu.ids, have existed for
~20 years. Since you refer to pci.ids - why not reuse it but grow a
local copy instead?

The file lists ~2.8k entries for 1002 ATI/AMD, yet those include north
bridges and others which are not applicable here.
I'm afraid your argument is too subtle.

As they say "Not my circus not my moneys" (don't take this the wrong way).

P.S. Please convince your email client to quote properly?
