i hadn't seen this proc driver reference before.  checking a few of my
A100's and V100's and some off hand Quadro cards, i don't see the
serial number for any of them in the /proc.  sadly this would be
pretty handy, does anyone know which cards do support this?  i wonder
if there's some obscure something or other that needs to be turned on
to dump out the serial number in /proc instead of running nvidia-smi
