I just tried your script, but AFAIK it just figures out the quirks
that are necessary on the _current_ system by parsing the .fdi
What I actually had in mind was that we should do a static conversion
to produce a simple-to-parse text file map which can then be put into,
and maintained within (well, it's not going to change often any more),
pm-utils itself, so that we can get rid of hal/hal-info completely.
Would you want to change your script accordingly, or want me to work
on such a static conversion script?
I thought about having one file per vendor, such as
and each file would have a list of (dmi property:value)* → quirks map like
product_name:.*X31;bios-version:INET17WW s3_bios s3_mode
which can then be matched against /sys/class/dmi/id/* with grep.
