No, this is reasonable, i will add an extra comment and commit.

Plus, i think that we need to track down some badly filled out boards, 
pciid wise, so that we can change behaviour around the ids a bit. Make 
it a bit tighter:
* require 2 main ids, always.
* don't allow -m when a valid subsystem id is there.

But that's a discussion for some other time, and anyway, it has a rather 
tough prerequisite.
