smbios(1M) slot printing could be clearer
Today, when smbios(1M) prints slot information, it prints a device and function ID that are combined. This ends up making it much harder to read and understand what it is and match it up to other operating system facilities. For example:
... Bus Number: 1 Device/Function Number: 8 ...
Instead, this now looks like:
... Bus Number: 1 Device/Function Number: 1/0 ...
This makes it much clearer about what the device value is and what the function is. It'd be rather hard to know that you should have taken it apart in the past and where to do the mental shift.
