ci devices identify them via numeric ids only, the strings come from
the hwdata databases.

It's not just that ens1371 is shown as unrealistically popular, it's
also that it doesn't know a single HDA device. I mean,
seriously... what will smolt claim next? that santa claus exists?

To me it appears that the data shown on this smolt web thingy originates
from /dev/random. 

Unrelated to this, it's fun to see what happens when one accesses
http://smolt.fedoraproject.org/static/stats or a similar URL... ;-)
