I think this is a really bad idea, sorry. In my opinion this will
confuse users even more ("but I already have quirks and it still
doesn't work!") and stop genuine fixes getting pushed upstream.

If we can fix this in the kernel and push this upstream then all well
and good, but I think that making these sort of assumptions is a bad
thing to do.
