With help of DMI we may narrow down the search.

But again, we are talking about uncertainity. It may be your way (a lot of
platforms that have different settings), or mine (only a few with more or less
standard sets of settings).

DMI is simply standard in Linux (people usually easier can grep for quirks for
a specific platform).

I would rather ask Hans' opinion since he has quite an expertise with DMI for
good and bad.
