Please note this problem has to pieces.  Which information should we represent
and how should we represent it.

Devices on a motherboard are not necessarily connect as a tree.  I have never
seen a tree structured schematic :)  So the actual layout of the data is to some
extent secondary to the data structures we will use to represent that data.

So we need to drill down on that part as to how we represent logical devices
and how we represent the logical connections between them.
