Please review #883470 for hardware->package mappings related to virtualization and clouds


in #883470 I requested a small update to let isenkram install the correct
package on virtualbox guests. It would be nice if you could review and submit
other missing mappings for other virtualization technologies (you can just
reply to all on this mail for this).

You can match any modalias entry found in the running guest:
$ sudo cat $(find /sys/devices -name modalias) | sort -u

You will see it includes lots of things (ACPI data, cpu data, DMI,
platform data, PCI/USB identifiers, WMI). You can also match on loaded
kernel modules.

See https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/collab-maint/isenkram.git/tree/modalias-format.txt
for what you can match and
for the current mapping list.

It would be nice to also include the relevant data in appstream meta-data

Thank you in advance.
