There's a patch in Andi's queue
(ftp://ftp.firstfloor.org/pub/ak/x86_64/quilt-current/patches/feature/dmi-early)
which adds

#include <asm/dmi.h>

into arch/i386/kernel/dmi_scan.c.

hence with both your patch and Andi's patch applied, ia64 won't compile due
to missing asm/dmi.h.

I've been reverting Andi's patch due to this, but it seems reasonable that
dmi_scan.c be able to include asm/dmi.h..

So to get these thing to play together properly we'll need an
include/asm-ia64/dmi.h which does the stuff which is in the two dmi.h's
which Andi's patch creates.

Is that something you could take a look at, please?

You'll need a kernel to patch, so I'll include this in next -mm:

I assume that those ioremap->dmi_ioremap conversions are appropriate.

It could be that Andi's changes break the ia64 dmi impementation - I don't
know.  I guess it's OK if ia64 is not doing a scan "early".

The above might not compile, but I'll make sure that it does so before
releasing next -mm.

So.  Bottom line: please test the ia64 dmi patches in next -mm, send any
needed fixups, thanks.


We should move this code into drivers/ or something - #including other
architecture's stuff like this is awful.
