Looks good, go ahead and push it.

Sorta -- the recommended way is to either just pass the appropriate
quirks on the command line, or have an entry in the quirkdb for your
system.  You might want to make a note about submitting an update to
the quirk database if you have to use ADD_PARAMETERS or
DROP_PARAMETERS to make things work.
