It's a perfectly safe workaround that's limited to a well-bounded set of
machines and fixes a pretty serious problem with them. While I'd prefer
my approach and then a removal of the existing quirk entries, Alex's
patch makes more sense for stable. The BIOS update is as yet unreleased,
requires either Windows or an optical drive (which some of these
machines don't have) and is a far from discoverable solution to the
issue.
