I have made modifications to dmidecode to support this interface, and it
works quite nicely for dmidecode. (changes posted to dmidecode-devel list)
The only open issue I am aware of is how the SMBIOS v3 entry point
will be handled,
especially in cases where there is a v2 and a v3 entry point.
In principal I think this a good change - are there any other open issues?

Thanks,
Roy
