I totally agree with this, and this is the way the rest of Linux works.
There should not be any difference in the hardware descriptors between
operating systems.

If Linux isn't working properly for some hardware, we will fix it, do
not work around Linux issues (perceived or real) in hardware.

Bjørn, thanks for catching this kernel change, I'll revert it and push
the changes to the stable kernel releases. It was my fault to not
notice this bug, my apologies.
