Yes, but your concern is still valid if any of them re-use ff/ff/50 for
something which is not RMNET/QMI.  We do not want this driver to start
matching a non-Qualcomm based device.

Yes, that' a risk since we have no knowledge of Qualcomm's plans or
thoughts around this. It's all pure guesswork from my side.  But as
such, it doesn't differ from the rest of this driver :-) Qualcomm can
change whatever they want and we'll just have to follow up with whatever
is required. Like what happened when raw-ip became mandatory.

I do find it unlikely that Qualcomm will ever change the meaning of this
pattern now that they've started using it.  That would not make any
sense. If they need to create a new vendor specific function type, then
they can just use one of the "free" protocol numbers (and also subclass
if they run out of protocol numbers).

But it's your call.  If you want to play it safe and keep the VID+PID
matching, then I'm fine with that too.
