Thanks for the suggestion; it does look much cleaner that way.

Instead of sticking a big-ass if() in the function, I took the liberty
of adding a .probe alongside the .init/.setup quirks, in case this could
be useful for other devices.

Note that I did not bother to cache the result of find_quirk(), so it
will be called twice.  I did not find it worth to add extra complexity
just for that; let me know if you disagree.
