Another exception that should be added here is for devices which have
well-defined hardware components. For example, I don't need hardware
information for a QNAP TS-209 because it's a consumer NAS machine and
you cannot change internal components.
Of course having the output of the bug script won't help, but we
shouldn't close such bugs just because it's not included.
