Description of problem:
please add a search option from the smolt commandline and gui for vendor_name, vendor_id and device_name, device_id.

before you buy a new device or you get the infos from `lspci` or `lsusb` it would be helpful to check if a new device is linux compatible and you can query the smolt database from the commandline or the smolt-gui and which driver is needed. the query should be possible from any linux-installation, no matter if the device is in or out the computer.

ie.
# smolt -q v_name intel
Vendor Id: 0x8086 Short Name: Intel

# smolt -q v_id 0x8086
Vendor Id: 0x8086 Short Name: Intel

# smolt -q d_name 0x100E
Vendor Id: 0x8086 Short Name: Intel
0x100E Chip Number: 82540EM
Chip Description: Gigabit Ethernet Controller
driver: e1000

# smolt -q d_id 82540EM
Vendor Id: 0x8086 Short Name: Intel
0x100E Chip Number: 82540EM
Chip Description: Gigabit Ethernet Controller
driver: e1000


Steps to Reproduce:
1. not tested yet
  

Expected results:
vendor_id and device_id similiar to pcidatabase.com

Vendor Id: 0x8086 Short Name: Intel

0x100E Chip Number: 82540EM
