I have looked at it, thank you, unfortunately it does not work as i had in
mind as I still have to identify the hardware itself, so I need to find out
the pci device id for each chipset (and/or vice versa).
In hardware terms, I am working with device ids and not with chipsets. Is
there also a document covering the ids itself?

Anyway, I checked the hardware release notes as a first start and stopped
at the statement.
Note: The device lists in this document are being generated automatically
from FreeBSD manual pages. This means that some devices, which are
supported by multiple drivers, may appear multiple times.
So, could anybody tell me how you generate this list.
I would use this script and generate a list, that more fits the structure
of the database.
The hardware notes are mostly compiled from the HARDWARE sections of the
section 4 manpages. The interesting files are the following:
