Strictly speaking this is not necessary. The quirks are proceed
in core_initcall() while the sysfs interface is created in
late_initcall(). By other words, the quirks are uses before
the default can be modified by the sysfs interface.

On the other hand, it does not harm. Better be on the safe
side for eventual future changes.
