Thanks for taking a look. The only mention of the dmi/id I can find is
in Kconfig:

config DMIID
bool "Export DMI identification via sysfs to userspace"
depends on DMI
default y
Say Y here if you want to query SMBIOS/DMI system identification
information from userspace through /sys/class/dmi/id/ or if you want
DMI-based module auto-loading.

Are you suggesting that I create a list of the things in the /id node,
or something else?
