More explosions

Today I committed the Dell and Toshiba exploding battery detection into hal-info.

Now I need some help:

LENOVO or IBM Thinkpad users might be subject to recall – can you email me (richard_at_hughsie_dot_com) the output of lshal if you have such a notebook – either if you are affected or if the part or model numbers look similar to 9*P****.


EDIT: Thanks! I've got all the data I need now, so please stop the emails. I've committed code to hal-info to detect the recalled IBM data now.
