You are seeing it. If you read my other mails you would comprehend it as well.

As I said inform yourself, what the intention of the quirk is about. I am
tired of this.

Still you didn't give *any* proof that mcp51 needs quirk at all. I therefore
want that line *removed*:

+ QBRIDGE(PCI_VENDOR_ID_NVIDIA, 0x02f0, nvidia_timer), /* mcp 51/nf4 ?
*/
Furthermore my original bios didn't have option to enable hpet. What then?
Kernel hangs unless I specify acpi_use_timer_override. Great.

Hint: The correct way of quirking would be *only having this one* line:

+ QBRIDGE(PCI_VENDOR_ID_NVIDIA, PCI_DEVICE_ID_NVIDIA_NFORCE2,
nvidia_timer),

According to Len Brown's comment this would work for every nforce2. For every
other nforceX use DMI Scan and only quirk known broken bioses instead of
messing up working boxes.
