Perhaps we only want to collect a subset of that information, or at

reluctant to share the information collected because of it.

dmidecode is the only place I know we can get hardware model and for
example if the machine support IPMI, so I want to collect at least of

'Serial Number:' Not sure if it is enough to avoid the sensitive
