Just tried the "usbcore.quirks" with usb builtin, I can't reproduce the
issue. Futher investigation shows that device_param_cb() macro is the
key, or the "6" in __level_param_cb(name, ops, arg, perm, 6) is the key.
While i915.mitigations uses module_param_cb_unsafe(), in which the level
will be "-1"

arch/um/drivers/virtio_uml.c also makes use of device_param_cb()

thanks
