Overall, this looks great, just a few minor comments below:

Huh?  Default should be 'N' for any new feature, unless it keeps your
machine from booting.

I think you want this option to depend on X86 though, right?

I just realized (due to other work I'm doing on a laptop) that we have a
bunch of entries today in /sys/class/dmi/id which is a pointer to the
dmi "device".

Now I think this really is different (these are the raw DMI tables), but
this doesn't have anything to do with that code, right?

Is this really needed?  pr_dbg() instead please?

You don't want your name here?
