There is a sysfs interface to specify the quirks. However, some
quirk bits such as HID_QUIRK_MULTI_INPUT are only read once during
init/probe. Setting the quirks in sysfs does not make any change to the
behaviors related to those bits. Also, it is hard to wait for udev to
modify the quirks in case there is a rule given the current init and
state machine structure.

A simple kernel paramter is provided so that any time a custom quirk
needs to be tested can be easily applied. This enables the users to test
out which bits are indeed necessary with just a rmmod then
insmod/modprobe cycle. Thus, new hardware support can be added very
soon and unneccsary mildly costly quirks using mutex and timer can also
be removed based on user's self-test.

I don't think the last sentence above is adding anything. I don't see
where the mutex and timers are related to this patch.

The 2 changes "s/mtclass->quirks/td->mtclass.quirks/" should probably
be added as a separate patch (before this one). The reason is that
hid_parse might change the quirks values, and
MT_QUIRK_FIX_CONST_CONTACT_ID and MT_QUIRK_FORCE_MULTI_INPUT might be
different from the class definition at the end of probe, so
definitively, this is a bug (without consequences) that should be
addressed separately.

Cheers,
Benjamin
