Yeah, that would be cool to do. 2.7 :)

Yeah, I've wanted that for a while too. Don't really know how to get

Yeah, it was just a port from 2.4 which says:

struct pci_device_id {

unsigned int subvendor, subdevice;
unsigned int class, class_mask;

We could probably change it now if you really want to. Don't know if it
will save much space though.
