It is not possible to properly decode a DMI table without knowing which
version of SMBIOS it implements, as decoding of some fields depend on
the version. This is the reason why the binary dumps generated and read
by dmidecode have an entry point at the beginning of the file.

I am not sure why you want to use ioreg in the first place. Doesn't
dmidecode work on OSX?
