[Raring SRU][PULL] quirk PROBE_DEF for OmniVision webcam

*This patch has been sent upstream.

Bug reference:

        monitor webcam not detected (intermitent)


This model-specific quirk fixes an observed Raring regression
from 12.10.

Some models of OmniVision webcam need a pre-existing quirk in
order to avoid a condition which prevents the driver from
recognizing the harware consistently.  Some timing difference
between 12.10 and Raring exposed the problem for this particular
OmniVision model, which wasn't in the quirk list.


Bug reporter confirms that adding this model to the quirk list
fixes the problem, allowing the webcam to be consistently recognized
in Raring.

[Regression Potential]

Very low risk: This patch affects only this particular machine
and webcam model, and only inhibits the query for a feature which
this webcam doesn't support anyway.
