Bug Description

Please consider updating the pciutils database for the 12.04.3 LTS point release.

12.04.3 with the 3.8 raring-lts kernel is the minimum supported release and kernel combination for Intel Ivy Bridge server CPUs and chipsets. Some OEMs will be refreshing their server hardware with these new components.

Currently, if lspci is run against these machines, we are presented with some very generic information. For example:

System peripheral: Intel Corporation Device 0e80 (rev 04)

If the 'update-pciids' utility is run against these systems, then some more detailed information is presented on subsequent runs of lspci:

System peripheral: Intel Corporation Ivytown QPI Link 0 (rev 04)

Although update-pciids is a simple enough solution to get the proper information from these machines, it'd be more convenient to update pciutils if at all possible in order to avoid any confusion and possible support calls once customers start installing Ubuntu on these machines.
