SubjectRe: [PATCH v1 4/7] platform: mellanox: add new ODM system types to mlx-platform

General nit. When writing your messages, please use the imperative (command)
form. Rather than:

"Patch adds" or "It changes" use the same form you use in the subject lines:

"Add new ODM systems", "Fix struct field documentation", etc.

Again, I've been rewriting these, but as a regular contributor, this will help
reduce the overhead of reviewing your patches - good for you, good for me :-)

You said "it assumes that ODM companies can't change DMI_BOARD_NAME". Is that an
assumption, or is that how ODMs work with Mellanox?
