Assign to Adam for adding the inventory collection part for this.
So we have a model attribute which is unused for VM guest devices so no schema changes needed which is a big plus.

Parse the VirtualEthernetCard model type
There are a number of different types of VirtualEthernetCards : E1000,
Vmxnet3, etc... and this can be useful information to know.
We set the GuestDevice#model attribute for storage adapters, this reuses
that column to set the NIC's "model" type.
