Matching board via DMI
If a board is not uniquely identifiable by PCI device/subsystem IDs, a string can be specified to be looked for (case-sensitive, substring or anchored) for now in one of the following DMI items in addition to matching the PCI IDs: - System Manufacturer - System Product Name - System Version - Baseboard Manufacturer - Baseboard Product Name - Baseboard Version Strings are anchored re-like (^ at the beginning, $ at the end), but there are no plans to support full regular expressions and matched to any of the mentioned fields. The match is only made if DMI info is available and the string matches. If no DMI info is available and the PCI IDs match, a warning is printed as the board can not be autodetected. It's still open to discussion whether we add an DMI override switch to specify a string that will definitely match, and whether this switch is only used if no DMI is available or whether it overrides or augments DMI data. DMI data is currently read using dmidecode. This tool is available for all major platforms except MacOS X. I heard that there also is a MacOS X version of dmidecode, but didn't investigate that.
