The only way to find the values that I know of would be to plug the card
in, run Linux, and look at the ALSA /proc files. (Perhaps there's some
equivalent tool under Windows)

They encoded into the binary. I doubt they're user-accessible.
So, I think the best way to proceed is for you to modify your patch to add
IDs 0x15 and 0x16 only. I'm pretty sure ID 0x17 isn't assigned to anything.
Let's not remove any NVIDIA IDs even though I'm pretty sure a couple aren't
actually assigned; if I'm wrong, we'd just have to add them back later, and
having them in won't harm anything.
