Linux Diagnostic Tools has some interesting programs for 2.6 kernel:
o sysfsutils - Utilities that work with sysfs including libsysfs, a
library that creates an API for working with the device tree, and
systool, an application that lists buses, device classes, and system
o sysdiag - A system diagnostic command-line utility.
o lsvpd - A utility to list device Vital Product Data (VPD)
information. Currently only for Linux PPC and i386 platforms.
o pmem - A small module that grabs physical contiguous memory used for
sysfsutils may be interesting.
lsvpd and the like are not.
sysfsutils already is in rawhide.
