I don't agree. The dmesg output should describe the physical layout
of the hardware, too. When maintaining hundreds of systems in server
room, people usually forget what lives inside the computer cases. And
when one needs to tell what is the motherboard and how many sockets
and fans it has, he should be capable to do this without opening
the case.

I like John's suggestion about how physical/logical layouts can
be printed.

Totus tuus, Glebius.
