    Subject[RFC] DMI cleanup patches
    Hi all,

    currently arch/i386/kernel/dmi_scan.c file looks like complete
    mess. Interfacing with other kernel subsystem made using
    ad-hoc ways, mostly with ugly global variables, additionaly
    coding style is ... not good. So these patches appear:

    patch-dmi-1-matches - simplify DMI blacklist table by
    removing the need to fill unused slots with NO_MATCH macro.

    patch-dmi-2-api - separate and export dmi_check_system()
    function (along with some needed declarations) which checks given
    DMI id table against system DMI data and runs callback functions
    when necessary.

    patch-dmi-3-whitespace - various coding style cleanups.

    patch-dmi-4-sonypi - make sonypi driver use dmi_check_system()
    function and remove is_sony_vaio_laptop global variable.

    patch-dmi-5-apm - make APM BIOS driver use dmi_check_system()
    function and move all related quirks into apm.c.

    patch-dmi-6-pciirq - make pci irq routing code use
    dmi_check_system() function and make broken_hp_bios_irq9 variable

    patch-dmi-7-smbus - make PIIX4 I2C use dmi_check_system()
    function and remove is_unsafe_smbus global variable.

    Please take a look.

    Best regards.
