I agree.  Currently the spec file contains:

%ifarch %{ix86} x86_64
Requires:       dmidecode

I think that aarch64 should now be added to that list.

Verified with packages:

Install ore update virt-what:
# yum update virt-what
... ...
--> Running transaction check
---> Package virt-what.aarch64 0:1.13-7.el7 will be updated
---> Package virt-what.aarch64 0:1.13-8.el7 will be an update
--> Processing Dependency: dmidecode for package: virt-what-1.13-8.el7.aarch64
--> Running transaction check
---> Package dmidecode.aarch64 1:3.0-2.el7 will be installed
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
... ...

It's depending on dmidecode now.

So verified.
