Snapd automatic channel selection based on hardware detection

Please add a feature to automatically select default snap channels based on hardware detection.

This is especially pertinent to the GNOME plugin [0] on adreno and apple (asahi) devices for selecting hardware accelerated graphics drivers.

In prebuilt x13s and Ubuntu Asahi images these channels are preselected, but other distros using snapd and compatible hardware will not.

Originally requested on Launchpad [1].
