From my experience with unrecognized hardware in NetBSD, I never found
a *real* PCI card clone (i.e. a PCI device that behaves exactly as some other
PCI device already reconized by NetBSD, *without* quirks). 
Is that a common thing ?

Another problem is the added unstability of such tool. One could
define an invalid kernel driver for the chipset and, in the worst
case, it could render the card useless.
