Subject[PATCH v8 02/15] platform/x86: dell-wmi: increase severity of some failures
Date
There is a lot of error checking in place for the format of the WMI
descriptor buffer, but some of the potentially raised issues should
be considered critical failures.

If the buffer size or header don't match, this is a good indication
that the buffer format changed in a way that the rest of the data
should not be relied upon.

For the remaining data set vectors, continue to notate a warning
in undefined results, but as those are fields that the descriptor
intended to refer to other applications, don't fail if they're new
values.
