If a quirk like this is only needed when the driver is loaded, I think
the driver is a better place than drivers/pci/quirks.c. If it's in
quirks.c, either we have to replicate driver Kconfig via #ifdefs, or
the kernel contains the quirk for systems that don't need it.

I'm generally not a fan of simply masking errors because they're
annoying. I'd prefer to figure out the root cause and fix it if
possible. Or maybe we can tone down or rate-limit the logging so it's
not so alarming.
