Interesting, this is the latest BIOS from july 2019 according to:
yet the date is still set to 03/09/2015.

I just checked and the BIOS with not corrupted DMI strings also keeps
the date at 03/09/2015 in BIOS updates.

So the date is correct, and together with matching a coupleof the OEMB-s
(which I've never seen anywhere else either) this should be plenty

So this not only allows adding this mathc to atomisp, but also to fix
sound + wmi on bad DMI data OEMB Surface 3-s, by updating this patch:

To include the BIOS-date match and then submitting this upstream
(as 2 separate patches please).

Tsuchiya, I take it that your Surface 3 has the OEMB issue, so you
can actually test this ?

If you can prepare 2 patches for the sound + wmi then; and submit
them upstream that would be great. Please Cc me on both patches.
