    Hmm. You may be taken care of by one of the exceptions already in
    dmi_scan.c, and it'd be interesting (and useful) to find out. If you've
    got a few minutes, could you open up arch/i386/kernel/dmi_scan.c and
    either uncomment or add the line:
    #define dmi_printk(x) printk x
    after the existing "#define dmi_printk(x)".

    With that, upon boot the new kernel will show the BIOS version and date,
    which dmesg will show. If they are one of:

    R0203Z3 08/25/00
    R0203D0 05/12/00
    R0121Z1 05/11/00
    R0208P1 11/09/00

    ...then in fact your BIOS also gets it wrong, which would be
    aesthetically pleasing in a sort of perverted way.
