The vendor ID and device ID here would mean building a table of
platforms ids in this (currently platform independent) driver. I'm not
sure if my original patch introduces any problems that are worth
solving using such a table.

I would thus prefer to solve it using my original patch, I would
respin it taking care of your other review comments.
