Thanks Ivan, no problem. I'll look at it when I have time.

Two related notes:

* On week from April 13th to 17th, this is Hack Week 12 at SUSE. This
time I decided to work on dmidecode. I plan to add full support for
SMBIOS 3.0.0, including the new entry point format. Then I'll work on
integrating your work (the sysfs interface.) Project page:

If you or anyone else want to participate, you are very welcome. Ideally
we would release dmidecode 2.13 at the end of that week.

* Do you know of any hardware already implementing SMBIOS 3.0 (either
the new entry point format, or the new enumerated values, or both)?
Having a real-world example would make testing much easier.
