No, I was thinking of blacklisting the module/driver.  That's about the

Yes, no problem as long it's done by a distribution, either by not
building the driver or blacklisting it by default.  The problem is if
lots of end users have to blacklist it manually.  Such configurations
are hard to clean up.

Don't think that will be problem. Just don't put the workaround in any
MM with support for QMI.
