[PATCH] DMI: fix DMI onboard device discovery
Attached patch fixes invalid pointer arithmetic in DMI code to make onboard device discovery working again. akpm: bug has been present since dmi_find_device() was added in 2.6.14. Affects ipmi only (I think) - the symptoms weren't described. akpm: changed to use pointer arithmetic rather than open-coded sizeof.
