So wrt that whole HDA thing, can somebody explain what the difference
between a "patch" and a "quirk" is? It looks like the "quirks" are
smaller patches (they all seem to be about realtek, at least

And does it really make sense to use #include to get the *.c files?
Wouldn't it be much nicer to have a "realtek" subdirectory and link
those together.

I don't care deeply, but the whole HDA source organization is getting
pretty darn ugly, I have to say.
