ds-identify uses the /sys filesystem which is linux specific and non-portable

Bug Description

On FreeBSD, /sys is a convenient link to /usr/src/sys; the kernel source code.

Especially for the DMI_ info, we should probably look into using `dmidecode` which at least on FreeBSD we already pull in as dependency:

    root@container-host-02:~ # pkg info -r dmidecode

The only problem i see is that many names don't map nicely.
For instance, sys_vendor is (either bios-vendor or) system-manufacturer.
