if it's free text it'll be useless for search ... I suppose we could
do drop-downs for architecture at least? Not sure much beyond that
would work ... *possibly* the common drivers, but I don't think
we'd get enough coverage for it to be of use.

How about several buckets for model/BIOS version/chipset etc., at
least optional, and some will be relevant some not for particular
cases. But at least people will make an attempt to collect such data
from their system, boards, etc.
