    Not really. There's two types of fixup (well, four if you multiply by
    the header vs later possibility). There's the incredibly specific ("this
    device from this manufacturer forgets to set something properly") and
    the incredibly general ("if this is a cardbus / IDE device, then ...").
    This patch simply distinguishes between the two. Obviously the general
    ones run after the specific ones -- there's specific devices that forget
    to set their class code, for example.

    I don't want to call it "final final" at all. Did you miss the message
    where I explained the problem with this being link order dependent?

    I already apologised to you on IRC for that yesterday.

    "Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon
    the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
    conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
    to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince
    himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
    he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
