The nice thing about this database is it's also a wiki with history. Having inspected a pseudorandom sample, it seems that the history of each item tends to contain just one entry. If that's the case for 99% of the hardware entries (pending verification with some database query), then the existing reports can be treated as hardware X works with free software with any combination of the following distributions and kernels if we adopt a table representation like the one you proposed. It may not be accurate, but probably won't lose much information compared to what we have, with added benefits that existing record won't need to be clobbered.
