Description Brian Maly 2009-03-04 16:01:13 EST
Description of problem: DMI no longer works on EFI systems

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system
2. Observe that DMI did not initialize in dmesg
Actual results:
DMI does not initialize

Expected results:
DMI should initialize and reported as initialized in dmesg

Additional info:
Comment 1 Brian Maly 2009-03-04 16:02:53 EST
dmi scan is called before efi_init(). This causes dmi not to initialize (dmi tables are extraced by efi_init) and also causes efifb not to load on Apple hardware because the driver depends on dmi matching.
