Please no. I make frequent use of that functionality when porting to a new
machine. It also makes my life much easier to just ask a user for a dmesg, and
have the descriptions right there.
Additionally, as a user, I like to see that stuff come across the screen when
booting. I know instantly if something is not right.
I don't want to have to sit around all the time looking up numbers on a chart
while trying to figure out what is wrong with this or that device attachment.
I strongly object. Pcictl is cute, assuming I can get to userland.
