A tangential problem I trip over is "what is on this SD card?"

It generally takes me 5-10 minutes to remember:

  strings /<mount>/boot/kernel/kernel | tail

AFIAK it's the only way to be sure; nothing in /<mount>/* seems
to have that data.

(Yes, in theory they all live in their own little box each of
which is labeled but things happen ...)
