I would prefer to see all vendor/device IDs in a file which maps
each device to its driver.  I think having a device claim to be
something it isn't will only cause confusion.

Handling non-trivial device additions would still require digging into
the driver code.  However being able to easily add support for new
devices which may differ only in device ID would be a really nice
