Well, adding the quirk label is fine, but this is no real fix.
I can apply it with a different subject.

Anyway, it's not such quite common that the machine doesn't work
without the model quirk any longer :) In most cases, we want to avoid
the model quirk but fixing the pin configuration instead.

If the auto-parser doesn't work as is, please give output
on your machine, and give the exact description what doesn't actually
work. Then we can fix in a better way.
