Hi Danny,

Apologies for dropping the ball!

I think <installer> is too vague and it sounds like it’s basically a
procedure, which it’s not.  <soc> would be fine IMO, or <system-on-chip>
if we want.

I think we need a table to look things up by name anyway, but we may
also need a record type: I suppose we’d want to describe things in that

For the lookup table itself, see for example ‘file-system-type-modules’
in (gnu system linux-initrd).

Sounds like the right place, yes.
