I've noticed that under HP-UCCH there is a neat little command called "ioscan"
which probes the hardware bus (or, if you choose, checks the kernel first :-)
for configured hardware.  It then tosses out stuff like:

H/W Path  Description Status
1.0.0     graphics    ok(0x577)
2.0.1     scsi        ok(0x7071) tape_drive  ok(0x1800202)
2.0.2     lan         ok(0x7072)
2.0.3     hil         ok(0x7073)
2.0.4     serial      ok(0x7075)
2.0.5     serial      ok(0x7075)
2.0.6     parallel    ok(0x7074)
2.0.7     scsi        ok(0x707c) disk        ok(0x202)
2.0.8     audio       ok(0x707f)

Perhaps not what we had in mind here, but the principle is similar.

After 5 PM please slip brain through slot in door.
