CONFIG_DMI: Enable support for SMBIOS (DMI) tables

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_DMI has multiple definitions:

Enable support for SMBIOS (DMI) tables found in arch/arm64/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_DMI:

Help text

This enables SMBIOS/DMI feature for systems.

This option is only useful on systems that have UEFI firmware. However, even with this option, the resultant kernel should continue to boot on existing non-UEFI platforms.

Help text

This enables SMBIOS/DMI feature for systems.

This option is only useful on systems that have UEFI firmware. However, even with this option, the resultant kernel should continue to boot on existing non-UEFI platforms.

NOTE: This does *NOT* enable or encourage the use of DMI quirks, i.e., the the practice of identifying the platform via DMI to decide whether certain workarounds for buggy hardware and/or firmware need to be enabled. This would require the DMI subsystem to be enabled much earlier than we do on ARM, which is non-trivial.

Enable DMI scanning found in arch/x86/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_DMI:

Help text

Enabled scanning of DMI to identify machine quirks. Say Y here unless you have verified that your setup is not affected by entries in the DMI blacklist. Required by PNP BIOS code.
