I think above line should be removed as dmi_ver is set before
dmi_walk_early with the commit, see below clip.
We did get right UUID order with SMBIOS 2.6 per customer test.

+static int __init smbios_present(const char __iomem *p)
+{
+ u8 buf[32];
+ int offset = 0;
+
+ memcpy_fromio(buf, p, 32);
+ if ((buf[5] < 32) && dmi_checksum(buf, buf[5])) {
+ dmi_ver = (buf[6] << 8) + buf[7];

The basic idea is right, but you ignore the case dmi_walk_early may
fail, though looks impossible when bootup.

Better to add below for robust.
