Currently only field.name is accepted in update_fields argument. It seems field.attname should be accepted, too. Most commonly this will be encountered when trying to save a related field by "_id" appendix - for example update_fields=profile? will work, but update_fieldsprofile_id? will not work currently.
In my opinion this should work, as profile_id works in many other places, too, and this could be useful for automatic tracking of field changes for example.
