Only those for whom the quirks are incorrect to begin with, and it is
apparent by the bug reports we have been getting the i915 changes in
2.6.26 did not by any stretch make the Intel DRM drivers quirk-free.

1.2.1 will also have fdi file generation capabilities, so getting the
right quirks added will be much easier.
