This was something requested by Bjorn to inform that user has a broken HW
when a quirk is matched.

The new code will disable extended tags only if it was enabled on endpoint
via power on reset value or via some broken BIOS.

It looks like we are not seeing any disabling message. This implies that
both the card and BIOS is good.

That's why, you are no longer seeing a disabling message on this system
and code is just not enabling extended tags.
