I am not sure we want to touch it. From what I could gather it had
been used as workaround for lack of proper EFI support in Linux kernel
long ago and it is unlikely any system that required it would have

More or less the same. efiemu is used for (assuming it is still used
by anyone) for Apple systems only, so unless Apple actually supports
SMBIOS v3 it is probably better to leave it.

I haven't tried any recent Apple systems, but in my quest to find v3
hardware, I looked at a MacBook Air from a generation or two ago.  It
only supported v2.4.

Do you want an updated patch, or is this usable with those files'
changes deleted?

Update patch would be nice. Thank you!
