This looks like the table end markers are missing or the length was wrong.
If you change

static int __init dmi_table(u32 base, int len, int num, void (*decode)(struct d
char *buf;
struct dmi_header *dm;
u8 *data;
int i=0;

in arch/i386/kernel/dmi_scan.c to use

int i=1;

does it then behave nicely ?
