I'm guessing that the subsystem IDs are HP
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.
