I'd like to note that I've been sitting on this for several months,
hoping to be able to submit with less uncertainty. I shall further
note that I'm sitting on a similar Ice Lake patch, triggered by
seeing Linux'es e0748539e3d594dd26f0d27a270f14720b22a406. The
situation seems even worse there - I can't make datasheet and
Linux commit match even remotely, PCI-ID-wise. I didn't think it
makes sense to submit a patch in such a case.
