I have no concrete evidence for this but my feeling based on a poke around
the windoze drivers a few years ago is that they were configured for the
particular laptop by the manufacturer.  This configuration information is
not in an obvious location though - if they go this way it's either embedded
within the driver itself or located in a binary format file somewhere.  In
both cases this makes it almost impossible to utilise.
