Btw this patch doesn't apply cleanly, the reject looks like this,

dmi_ver &= 0xFFFFFF;
dmi_len = get_unaligned_le32(buf + 12);
dmi_base = get_unaligned_le64(buf + 16);

+ memcpy(smbios_header, buf, smbios_header_size);

* The 64-bit SMBIOS 3.0 entry point no longer has a field

What version of the kernel did you base this patch on? The conflict is
trivial to fixup and I've done so and pushed it out on the EFI 'next'
