Sorry that my comment was misleading. I meant using the quirk framework
(that is based on DMI matching) I sent in another series. This applies
to the other replies from me.

However, thanks to your comment, I remembered that currently, the quirk
framework can be used only within pcie.c file. For example, the quirk
initialization is currently done in pcie.c file. The mwifiex driver is
divided into interface-specific modules (PCIe, SDIO, USB) (e.g.,
mwifiex_pcie module for PCIe interface) + common module (mwifiex module).

So, I need to extend the quirk framework so that it can be used by the
mwifiex module globally.

I'll make a v2 version of this series with using the updated quirk
framework so that it won't change behaviors for existing users.
