[libvirt] [PATCH 0/3] virSysinfo: Try dmidecode on aarch64

Posted by Michal Privoznik 2 weeks ago
Turns out some aarch64 machines provide SMBIOS and thus we can use
dmidecode to get the sysinfo. Currently, we're parsing /proc/cpuinfo
which is very sparse on ARMs.

Yes, ideally everything would be exposed somewhere in sysfs, and libvirt
would ditch dmidecode in favor of sysfs, but how realistic is that?

Michal Prívozník (3):
  virSysinfoRead: Simplify #ifdef underbush
  virSysinfoParseX86BaseBoard: Free memory upfront if no board detected
  virSysinfoReadARM: Try reading DMI table
