I think this driver is incorrectly structured and adding new DMI
signatures should not be needed. The newer hardware has the device
GOOG0004 in their ACPI tables, we should not need additional DMI checks.
DMI checks should only be needed for much older hardware, such as
Link/Peppy that did not have EC described in DSDT.

Let me see if I can fix it up.
