Thanks for this patch.

A few comments if I may:
Having the ability to get wikified output is definitely a huge
improvement over what we have today.
Please make sure the "... unknown SPI chip" variants are not listed.
Status: "Broken" ends up as "?".
IMHO the wiki output code uglifies quite a lot of files. Please stick it
into one common file called wikifier.c or something like that.
URLs in arrays feel weird. Having the URLs in wikifier.c as well would
make sure they are out of the way.
