How valuable is an incomplete interface really? If users who want to
decode MIDRs are going to have to rely on (pretty trivial ) userspace
tools anyway when their stable distro kernel doesn't know their spangly
new hardware, why does the kernel need to bother at all.

The fact is that we already do the exact same thing as x86 - we print
exactly what the ID registers say. The fact that on x86 some of those
values happen to form a readable ASCII string is a different matter.

So for a fair chunk of *current* server-class hardware, we'll be
printing "unknown" already. Great.

Robin.
