[Patch 0/3] firmware: dmi_scan: add SBMIOS entry point and DMI tables

From: Ivan Khoronzhuk
Date: Thu Apr 02 2015 - 08:57:48 EST

This series adds SMBIOS entry point table and DMI table under
/sys/firmware/dmi/tables in order to use as an alternative to utilities
reading them from /dev/mem.

This is logical continuation of
"[Patch] firmware: dmi_scan: split dmisubsystem from dmi-sysfs"

Based on efi/next

Last changes:
- renamed dmi_table to dmi_decode_table
- moved tables under /sys/firmware/dmi/tables/
- avoid "subsystem" word
- split in separate patch correction of dmi-sysfs documentation
- using -ENOSYS instead of -EINVAL
- use user read only rights for table attributes
- use "static" for attributes
- check only dmi_available for table presents
- don't correct dmi_walk to constantly map dmi_table
- explicitly delete binary attributes
- assign dmi_kobj = NULL in case of error
- don't export dmi_kobj if CONFIG_DMI is not set
- improve read callback for table attributes
