Yep, it's very possible that I'm on the wrong track with that thought
(can you tell I don't know much about device drivers and hardware?

The vendor-string only appears once[1] in src:linux, and that's in a
YAML file that I don't see referenced within the build.  But I suppose
there are other places (nvram?) where the value could have originated
from.  My hope is that there's a relatively-hardcoded value somewhere
that we can read from, so that we don't have to worry about any
configuration changes applied locally per-system.

Either way: ignore me for a while, I'll go and use the instructions
you provided later in your message to try to figure out the source of
these values (thank you!).
