See my comment in the other thread -- you don't need any of the text
details, all yo uneed are teh class/card/chip/rev/hdr fields. The bits
before it would be helpful to identify what drivers are attached on
different versions (and also to see what drivers people disable vs leave
enabled for bits of their hardware).
Optimally, we'd love to have everyone report pciconf information, since
knowing what vendors and devices are in use would definitely add more
weight then *just* what version of FreeBSD, but in order to hopefully
get as much "buy into" this as possible, the script should be written to
allow it to be disabled ... again, I can't think of why someone would
feel that that was 'sensitive information', but providing the option to
shut it off is definitely a must ...
Agreed - if someone wants to stand up and be counted, but they feel
details of their hardware choices to be a gross violation of their
personal privacy, then we shouldn't put that in their way as a barrier
