Sorry, it just occurred to me that in the general case we can't link the hwdb submission key, we can just add the key value to the description field. This is because Apport's job ends with opening a browser window to file a bug, and never gets back the ID.

So either developers need to grab the key and fetch the corresponding hwdb object manually, or LP needs to be extended to accept a checkbox submission key in the +storeblob area (in the MIME headers, similar to the Private:, Subscribers:, and Tags: fields). The latter would obviously be preferrable, but needs further changes in LP.

Abel, what do you think?

For now I'll just add the reference key to the description.
