A few days ago, Andrew Gillham mailed in a script to check for
hardware configuration differences between reboots. The script
made use of dmesg. There was discussion on how to specifically
find the most current configuration of the system. I did some
kernel delving and have come across information that could make
this a whole lot simpler.

The current auto-configurable kernels seem to store all device
information in a queue. If you iterate over this queue, you know
all the devices configured on the system. With a little programming
you could come up with a "print configuration" command.
