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).

No, and since drivers are constantly updated to supports new devices,
the manuals often contain old and incomplete information.
Unfortunately there is also no standard way in which drivers would
present the list of all the devices they support, but it is often very
