Thanks for the report and the fix, my comments below.

We usually add module options in very bad cases where it's very useful
for debugging or when some devices require the opposite settings while
can't be distinguished automatically. Here I do not see either of such
cases. Hence, I would prefer to see a DMI based quirk as it's done a
lot in the PDx86 drivers. Can you do that?

With Best Regards,
