Hmmm...I know nothing about the registration process of either of
these, but I'm guessing both the MAC OUI and the PCI device IDs are
likely to change once the registration is complete.

This puts a bit of twist on the discussion yesterday where one
suggestion was that people wanting to know if they're running in a
VirtualBox virtualized environment check the PCI device IDs for things
like 80ee:beef or 80ee:cafe.

-> 80ee:beef is the graphics device.  While the graphics device
probably won't change,
