This produces visible errors if the information isn't present (which
would be reasonable enough).  It might be better to check for errors and
include something about being unable to read DMI information in the
report - that'd be a bit less scary.

Also, on my system the DMI information is under /sys/class/dmi rather
than /sys/devices/virtual (this is with 2.6.25).

How about bios_vendor, bios_date and bios_version as well?

For embedded devices the relevant information is often in /proc/cpuinfo
so it might be worth adding that too.
