the answer is a bit complex; I'll try to break it down in steps ...

step 1) the text database as used by lspci
This is quite easy, just go to and add
your pci ids to the database

step 2) the drivers
this is a bit more work, basically this is about teaching individual
drivers that support your hardware about your new IDs.

for example the i810-like audio driver has a table like this:

 static struct pci_device_id snd_intel8x0_ids[] __devinitdata = {
        { 0x8086, 0x2415, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, DEVICE_INTEL }, /* 82801AA */
        { 0x8086, 0x2425, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, DEVICE_INTEL }, /* 82901AB */
        { 0x8086, 0x2445, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, DEVICE_INTEL }, /* 82801BA */
        { 0x8086, 0x2485, PCI_ANY_ID, PCI_ANY_ID, 0, 0, DEVICE_INTEL }, /* ICH3 */

if your hw is compatible, just add your ID, test the new river (since
you have the hardware) and send a patch to the driver mainter and/or the
lkml mailing list

Does this answer your question?
