Makes sense to me. Userspace can learn the relevant IDs that their NVM format is
known.

Yes, fwupd already takes this into account, but the question here is how to
handle cases that NVM is available but the format isn't known to
userspace (yet).

It's not about finding the relevant image for upgrade (which must be searched
for by looking in the DROM vendor/product values), but about the question if the
NVM format is known to userspace and skip the parsing work if it's anyway going
to fail.

So yes, I think exposing vendor ID (and maybe also product ID) can improve the
situation.

Thanks!
