Someone was trying to build this information up for FreeBSD around
August last year. I'm not sure what happened ... I'll ping the guy
who was collecting the information and ask.
I don't think the dmesg output has all the good information, since it
- BIOS revision (which can be the motherboard)
- termination type (passive or active)
- manufacturer (although this is mostly badge engineering, I think)
P.S. If you start collecting that information I'll send it to you, but
I'm going to have to reboot to get the BIOS revison.
