Hmmm... in that case you may not want the compiler to convert the bit value
to a 'bool' at all.

Passing 'id_entry->driver_data' through (that doesn't look like a field name for
'quirk flags) would generate better code.

Even better would be to reference the flag directly from 'ndev'.
A pointer indirection for the test if probably faster then passing another argument.
