I believe it means no driver has been loaded for the device but i could be wrong ... 'man lshw' doesn't say ?

<edit> a quick search found this:

Each node has its individual status: it be CLAIMED (potentially usable) or UNCLAIMED (no driver has been detected for this node), ENABLED (this device is supported and can be used) or DISABLED (this device is supported but has been disabled):
