Hi Matthias,

Note that beyond bug fixes, stable kernel rules also allow for:

- New device IDs and quirks are also accepted.

In general, patches that enable devices which use existing in-kernel drivers are also accepted to the stable kernel tree.

If this is not the case here, or you have a reason to keep it out, please let me know.
