The version history does not seem to me a useful place to document quirks in
hardware.  The history is usually full of so much trivia that it is hard to
search.  The history also usually doesn't include much in the way of useful
information.  It seems to me that either the source, or the Documentation
directory is a good place to document quirks in hardware.
