The time taken to review the patches is not an issue.

The bit where my initial message asking what type of implementation
you might prefer was ignored, combined with the reply to the patches
we sent 3 months later basically saying "don't do it like that" felt
slightly less than productive.

The problem is that we're not just looking at dmidecode. We are
looking at many different tools. And there really isn't much point in
us going back and changing kernel interfaces before we know if
whatever that turns into is going to be acceptable to them.

Hence the library. 

So, sorry, but I can't guarantee anything at this point.

But we'll come back when we have at least some vague agreement from
a few more projects on how to progress.
