I think i was a bit quick/excited about getting this info in
there..Tested on my 2 machines here (both running 2.6.24 though) without
issues.. Will have to look into it further (after taking your advice)
and rework this patch.

This will certainly be a pain, if the info keep moving around.. unless
we do some quick 'search' for the 'dmi' dir.

How useful is the BIOS information going to be, in most cases ?

Can i get an example output or 'cpuinfo' on an embedded device (if you
have one available) so i can see what im looking for.
