iirc the problem is that some entries in the current pciid list are not present
in the mares list. this leaves two options:
1) take the mares list and add the missing entries from the current pciid
2) try to get all entries from the current pciid committed upstream to the
mares list and once that's been done do a complete import of the mares list,
replacing the current pciid file entirely.
