CPU/Socket might be useful because it makes it easier to estimate the
effort for porting to a new mainboard by just doing a quick check of the

In addition to southbridge we might want to add "other bridges" like the
8131 PCI-X bridge (we call all of them southbridges in LinuxBIOS context
so far). Maybe "special items"? Then we could add HTC connectors, PCIe,
and some such tags.
