Perhaps this could be expanded in some way.

If Fedora finds any unsupported hardware it could display a dialog
informing the user:

- device class and vendor
- link to vendors homepage
- vendors contact to click (thus launching the email client) and ask for
linux-support (pre-filled email-text ?)
- link to fedoras wiki for explaning
	a) why this happened (binary only firmware, ...)
	b) instructions to get it running
