    ftp://ftp.linux.org.uk/pub/linux/alan/DMI/dmidecode.c works properly
    on my desktop machine, but on the affected laptop it just repeatedly
    prints out

    DMI 2.3 present.
    44 structures occupying 1330 bytes.
    DMI table at 0x17FF0000.
    dmi: read: Illegal seek

    and doesn't say anything interesting. Both machines are running
    vanilla Red Hat 7.2, I think. Shall I try it with vanilla 2.4.18-rc1?
