Forgot to mention, you could also use the .inf file from a driver for
some other OS to get the pci ids. The official ati pci id list contains
entries which are somewhat bogus, i.e. ids which don't really exist -
for instance firegl v3300 with rv410 AFAIK never made it to market
(firegl v3300 on the market use rv515), likewise things like x700xt
don't exist outside some samples. If it's not supported by the windows
driver, there's a good chance it can be safely ignored (unless it's an
entry for a mobility chip or some mac card or something). Though
ultimately I guess it doesn't really matter which list you use, they are
similar enough.
