Subject[60/98] DMI: allow omitting ident strings in DMI tables
2.6.32-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Dmitry Torokhov <dmitry.torokhov@gmail.com>

commit 75757507e014fa074d25d2883c4ab604999584bd upstream.

The purpose of dmi->ident is twofold - it may be used by DMI callback
functions when composing log messages; it is also used to determine
end of DMI table in dmi_check_system() and dmi_first_match(). However,
in case when callbacks are not interested in using ident at all it just
wastes memory. Let's make entries with empty first match slot serve as
end-of-table markers instead.

[needed for DMI table changes that need to be done by later patches - gkh]
