I hope you remember correctly and mean it this time. It would be better
if you could double check.

I'm a little sceptical because we had this patch in OpenSUSE 10.3
and I didn't think there were complaints from NF2 users.
With the changes you're requesting it turns from something 
very well tested into something experimental.

But NF2 should not need a timer override anyways so probably
ignoring it there is ok.

Actually checking CK804 is already an Nforce2, but you might
have NF2S which has a different ID. Do you have full lspci/lspci -n
output?

Ok I'm appending another patch that adds the NF2S too, can
you please test it on that machine?

Can you please test it?

It was a heuristic originally to detect the NF5 which did need
the override. That is why I first removed it because it should
have been obsolete.

Yes, it was a problem in the Nvidia reference BIOS that they sent to OEMs
to base their own BIOS on, so pretty much everybody had this problem.

We went over this with Nvidia engineers with a fine comb at this 
point. If you search the mailing list archives you might even
find the discussions.

Replace nvidia timer override quirk with pci id list v3

[This patch was originally in the old ff tree and was intended for .24; but
somehow got lost in the arch merge. Has also shipped with OpenSUSE 10.3.
I think it should go into .25] 

This replaces the old NF3/NF4 reference BIOS timer override quirk with a device 
ID list. We need to ignore the timer override on these systems, but not 
ignore it on NF5 based systems. Previously this was distingushed by checking
for HPET, but a lot of BIOS vendors didn't enable HPET in their pre Vista 
BIOSes.

Replace the old "for all of nvidia" quirk with a quirk containing pci device
ID. I goobled this list together from pci.ids and googling and it may be 
incomplete, but so far I haven't had complaints.

I also straightened out the ifdef jungle a bit.

v1->v2: Readd the HPET check to handle a NF4 system of Prakash Punnoor.
	This means with HPET we always assume timer overrides are ok.
v2->v3: Match any IDs, not only bridges again.
	Add NF2S ID
