[Bug 1826200] Re: RFE: populate "OEM Strings" (type 11) SMBIOS table strings from regular files

We'll probably never have resources for this -- nice to have feature,
but has not become critical in ~1.5 years. LP doesn't allow me to close
the ticket as "Won't Fix", so I'll have to go with "Invalid". (The
report is not invalid at all, but the ticket status should *somehow*
reflect that we have no resources for working on this.)
** Changed in: qemu
Status: Confirmed => Invalid

RFE: populate "OEM Strings" (type 11) SMBIOS table strings from
Status in QEMU:
The feature added in
and exposed by libvirt as
allows the user to specify up to 255 strings in the unofmatted area of
the Type 11 SMBIOS table, where each string may be of arbitrary
length. This feature is useful for exposing arbitrary text to
arbitrary guest components (in particular when strings are prefixed
with "application identifiers").
Right now, strings can only be specified on the QEMU command line,
which limits the amount of data that can be passed. Please enable
users to pass data from regular files too.
where "file1.txt" and "file2.txt" could be text files containing ASCII
application prefixes, followed by base64-encoded binary data.
