OK, great.

Please do!

This particular example seems to match just fine, both specification
versions 2.8.0 and 3.0.0 have "7.5.2 Processor Information - Processor
Family" and the source code has:

static const char *dmi_processor_family(const struct dmi_header *h, u16 ver)
        const u8 *data = h->data;
        unsigned int i, low, high;
        u16 code;

        /* 7.5.2 */
        static struct {
                int value;
                const char *name;
        } family2[] = {

So what exactly is bothering you?
