To avoid having to duplicate the device data across every single RHEL 6.x
update, we should put the devices in the older update (eg 6.0). For later
upodates 6.1, 6.2, etc, they can inherit the devices from the original
update 6.0. This should work in the general case, because minor updates
will typically be using the exact same devices, possibly just adding a
few newer ones. If we find we need to blacklist a device in a newer update
we can invent a syntax for that later
