   ia64 systems can have an SMBIOS table.  We're adding one for HVM
domains so that we can hook into the DMI capabilities in the Linux
kernel and make the ACPI _OSI call return true for "Linux" (2.6.18
already does this, but 2.6.23 doesn't by default).  This way we can
identify whether the HVM guest is Linux or Windows and tune per domain
optimizations in Xen accordingly.  Thanks,
