One more thought; would you consider exporting to sysfs sw->config.vendor_id?
Maybe an attribute that is switch_vendor?

Userland fwupd also does validation on the NVM and will need to follow this.
The same check will go into fwupd to match the vendor and lack of nvm_non_active0
to mark the device as not updatable. When the checks in the kernel get relaxed,
some NVM parsing will have to make it over to fwupd too to relax the check at that point.
