      x86, dmi, debug: Log board name (when present) in dmesg/oops output · 84e383b3
      Naga Chumbalkar authored
      
      
      The "Type 2" SMBIOS record that contains Board Name is not
      strictly required and may be absent in the SMBIOS on some
      platforms.
      
      ( Please note that Type 2 is not listed in Table 3 in Sec 6.2
        ("Required Structures and Data") of the SMBIOS v2.7
        Specification. )
      
      Use the Manufacturer Name (aka System Vendor) name.
      Print Board Name only when it is present.
      
      Before the fix:
        (i) dmesg output: DMI: /ProLiant DL380 G6, BIOS P62 01/29/2011
       (ii) oops output:  Pid: 2170, comm: bash Not tainted 2.6.38-rc4+ #3 /ProLiant DL380 G6
      
      After the fix:
        (i) dmesg output: DMI: HP ProLiant DL380 G6, BIOS P62 01/29/2011
       (ii) oops output:  Pid: 2278, comm: bash Not tainted 2.6.38-rc4+ #4 HP ProLiant DL380 G6
