arm64: dmi: Add SMBIOS/DMI support

SMbios is important for server hardware vendors. It implements a spec for
providing descriptive information about the platform. Things like serial
numbers, physical layout of the ports, build configuration data, and the like.

This has been tested by dmidecode and lshw tools.

This enables SMBIOS/DMI feature for systems.
This option is only useful on systems that have UEFI firmware.
However, even with this option, the resultant kernel should
continue to boot on existing non-UEFI platforms.
