Overall though the set seems big the majority seems to be new code which
is only used on specific system models.  So I guess it should be ok.  I
assume you are up for handling any fallout from stable patches on this

I see you have not signed off all of these as yet, and imply there are
some more quirk table patches coming for other machines, so I am not
going to ack this set but will wait for the 'complete' version.  For me
I would prefer to keep any patches which can be cherry-picks as such for
these additional quirks.
