Mappings for DMI/SMBIOS to Linux and dmidecode
Information can be put into dmi tables via some qemu-system hosts (x86_64 and aarch64). That information is exposed in Linux under
/sys/class/dmi/id and can be read with
dmidecode. The names are very annoyingly inconsistent. The point of this doc is to map them.
Example qemu cmdline:
qemu-system-x86_64 -smbios type=<type>,field=value[,...] qemu-system-x86_64 -smbios type=0,vendor=superco,version=1.2.3
