OK, this one is going to be interesting.

The board is made by ASUS for HP, it seems. HP calls it "Leonite" or "Leonite-GL8E".


But that would have been too easy. There are a bunch of other boards
on the HP site which are also called P5LP-LE, but have different HP code
names. From a quick glance I see at least:

  P5LP-LE (Leonite)
  P5LP-LE (Leonite2)
  P5LP-LE (Lithium)
  P5LP-LE (Limestone)
  P5LP-LE (Emery)

Fun! I don't know how to differ between them, the dmidecode from Leon

  DMI string baseboard-manufacturer: "ASUSTek Computer INC."
  DMI string baseboard-product-name: "P5LP-LE"

We don't know if other "P5LP-LE" might have the "Leonite" (or other) HP code
name in there or not. Maybe something is printed as silkscreen on the board?

An then one of these HP OEM boards is built into the Epson
"Endeavor MT7700" system/PC.

So it's a bit unclear which vendor/board name we should use in this
case. It's probably best to mention all of them for better googling

Attached is a slightly updated patch for review, let me know what you
