Reversed-engineered board enable for the ASUS A8N-LA.
IDs are ISA and SMBus.
Added dmi string to match 3 HP boards: Nagami, Nagami2, Nagami2L.
Do these three
boards have the same PCI IDs (including subsystem IDs)?
If not, you will need to write separate lines for them anyway. If they
have the same subsystem IDs, do you expect incompatible boards to have
the same subsystem IDs? If not, you don't need the DMI match. Using the
subsystem IDs, you can already be sure that you are on a HP system.
guessing that the subsystem IDs are HP specific,
Of course they are. That's why
the subsystem vendor ID is the HP ID.
and I can't tell if other HP boards used the
same chipset or not.
I know all three use the same board and have slightly different DMI to
reflect each machine.
So this is DMI just for safety. Might be sensible. On the
other hand, I
intended to use DMI only in emergency cases. Autodection for boards with
DMI strings fails if dmidecode is not available on the target system.
Here are the lspci, superiotool, flashrom, and dmi outputs for
