Here's my latest working copy of the smbios prober that works with new
dmidecode (found in latest ubuntu and fedora core rawhide)

With the old prober, and the new dmidecode, you get *no* smbios.* keys
on the computer node.

Using this new version, HAL will not parse the old style dmidecode
output, but works 100% with the new format. The code is now much more
resistant to errors. I've also cleaned up the file substantially.

Please review attached.
