How to get Lightroom recognize Canon S95 RAW photos

I’m probably not the only one who bought Canon S95 and noticed that Lightroom doesn’t recognize it’s RAW (.CR2) photos.
There is a little “hack” which you can do with exiftool (You can find that on http://owl.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/.

Just tell exiftool to change canonmodelID info to Canon S90:
exiftool -ext cr2 -canonmodelID="PowerShot S90" dir_of_your_cr2_files
and after that LR should recognize your raw files.

Thanks to Phil Harvey about this tip and also about whole exiftool software.
