Report PXI Chassis and Controller Serial Number

It would be good if MAX was able to report the serial number of the PXI chassis and PXI controller, if they are applicable.

I'm pretty sure it will get added soon.  In the meantime, here's how to get and display it yourself.  Look at the NI System Configuration API example "Show all Hardware" and see how it gets the serial number of every device.  You can modify it if needed to create a filter that looks only for an item that is a chassis with a bus type of PXI.
