Subject[PATCH 06/12] platform/x86: dell-wmi-smbios: Add a sysfs interface for SMBIOS tokens
Date
Currently userspace tools can access system tokens via the dcdbas
kernel module and a SMI call that will cause the platform to execute
SMM code.

With a goal in mind of deprecating the dcdbas kernel module a different
method for accessing these tokens from userspace needs to be created.

This is intentionally marked to only be readable as root as it can
contain sensitive information about the platform's configuration.

+Description:
+ A read-only description of Dell platform tokens
+ available on the machine.
+
+ The tokens will be displayed in the following
+ machine readable format with each token on a
+ new line:
