If the Sync cache fails with a "reasonable error code", then the code
that silence these errors should be enhanced rather than have a quirk
entry added.

Just to reitterate, the quirks are there for situations that cannot
be handled in a more programatic way (e.g. a device that dies when
you send it a certain command).  Please don't blindly re-enable quirks
to silence junk that winds up in syslog.
