I imported your db into gnumeric, sorted it to put the driver first,
converted it to html (and .csv).

A couple of possible problem entries

The comma in the following
53c7,8xx 256 4096 1
53c7,8xx 256 4096 2
53c7,8xx 256 4096 3
53c7,8xx 256 4096 4

and no number for device_id
saa9730 512 4401 PCI_DEVICE_ID_PHILIPS_SAA9730
pmc551 512 4528 PCI_DEVICE_ID_V3_SEMI_V370PDC
