Maybe the NICs subsystem vendor ID could be used somewhat too. Some
ethernet chips allow setting the PCI subsystem vendor and device ID in
the EEPROM - is that a proper place to put Artec Group ID in in the
first place? Then it would be a simple matter of listing the subsystem
IDs for the network card to uniquely identify the board.
